The timing chain was apparently not installed properly. Why did you have the timing chain changed out? was it broken? Why did they change the plugs?, and Why did they change the original o2 sensor? Slow down, you are upset and your typing shows it Plant yourself on the service manager's desk and find out the reasoning behind all the above questions.

garage told me when inspected about timing chain
1 oygen sensor was wire burn off
dodge told mechanic to change other one and change plugs
I will go there today and ask about timing chain

Could you use some punctuation and capitalization in your posts? Thanks.

It's a 2001, why would Dodge be instructing your mechanic to do anything, since it is out of warranty?? Do you have a really long drive train warranty, like lifetime for instance?? I have a 2001 ram 3500, and they would laugh me out of the county for asking for warranty work.

I don't understand how a new muffler could lead to a timing chain replacement. They aren't even remotely associated with each other.

Ayah that's better and makes sense. I would be more inclined to think it has to do with the O2 sensors and their failure causing a computer code to show up.
