30 Ounce,
If they suspect compression, go ahead and pay them to do the compression test. Under 100k, FCA will warranty a new head. Would you rather pay them $500 to check the compression, or $2500 for a new head after the warranty runs out? If the compression test comes back ok, then now would be a nearly free opportunity to change the plugs, which are due at 100k.

I'm interested to know what it turns out to be on yours.

A growing fleet, you may call me Admiral: 2014 3500 159"extended gas, and a 2014 2500 136" gas

Turns out it was a bad coil, #6 . They did 100k service since it was all apart. Got it back yesterday and went to work, came home and noticed a puddle where my van parks. Open the hood to find trans fluid everywhere. Back at the dealer now and they are investigating. Funny (not really) thing... I looked at their service sheet that details everything they did and it says "trans fluid contaminated and burnt recommend change fluid and filter"....I just did that lass than 2 weeks ago. I call BS!
