Mini-van is not the same engine.I bought this specific engine because in my experiences and research, this seemed to be the safest bet in a full sized truck.
I did read about the possible lifter problems before I purchased, and decided to take a chance. I want no part of cylinder deactivation, twin turbos, or direct injection.
My son had a 3.6 in a mini-van, and was well over 100k when traded, with no ticking. I can also confirm the oil change interval was not necessarily on a tight schedule.
Then again comparing a mini-van to a 1500 is a good comparison.
