Need help with my srt10 problem with the dealership

Hi my name is kyle, my father John Ray Phillips that is a Desert Storm Veteran, owner of a 2004 dodge ram srt10 2 door with an 8.3l v10 505 ci. I need help because the dealership here in Tucson, Az is trying to screw with the truck at Jim Click Dodge at the Tucson Auto Mall .Its in the shop getting a camshaft position sensor done. It has a problem, where it wont go over 2000rpm because it backfires whenever u try to go over the 2000rpm where it had originally reached 2500rpm. Jim click dodge dealership had been telling us that the PCM needed to be updated and that it had been done. The dealership has been acting fishy and they have had it for 3 weeks, saying the computer showed 5 codes, than 2 codes, than 7 codes that needed to be cleared. We had originally brought the truck in* to clear these codes because the truck was stuck in limp mode. The dealership service advisor at jim click dodge , we have reason to believe may be trying to minipulate the terms of the* extended warranty by trying to make us pay for the PCM and Camshaft Position Sensor.It has as of right now 18,843 miles on it and now the dealership put 206 miles over the past three weeks saying that the camshaft position sensor was fused together by the magnet. They have offered him $80,000 to $100,000 to buy the truck without giving us a reason as to why they wanted to buy it.* But we believe it is beacuse of the low milage on the truck which is seen as rare. He has no intention of selling it, just getting it fixed. They have had it long enough now and it should have been fixed.... So if there are any srt10 owners that can help us with any advice, to get it back up and running and out of the shop we would appreciate it , before they ruin it, trying to get their hands on it.

List of what it has, that is not factory on it:
Billet flywheel aluminum (not broken in yet needs 500 miles to be broken in)
Spec Stage 2 plus clutch plates and presure plate ( not beoken in yet, needs 500 miles to be broken in)
K&N air intake filter system
And barely 2 day old , new oem camshaft position sensor that we got from hot cars accessories located in spring hills florida


Thank you i hope to* hear back from you at viper truck club of america ,srt10 owners

Your story just doesn't make sense. They are offering you 4 times what the truck is worth even when broken? Take it back run a scan tool see what it says. If its the camshaft positioning sensor go buy one and replace it its not that hard. See what codes you have and go from there dont trust the dealership

The dealership did this time with the camshaft postion sensor on the front of the motor under the the throttle body of the intake system. Like my dad said because hes right by my side and he said its his retirement truck from being out of the military

Wow that's a lot going on. 1.if you got offered 100k for the truck you could buy the one of your choice and 1 for everybody in the family. 2. You wrote a whole story about the truck and no real info. What codes do you actually have? Did you use a oem crank sensor or aftermarket?
