Dead clinder in my 04 ram !!

So this is kind of a fallow up on my last thread but to toss it in a nut shell my truck (04 ram 5.7L) wouldn't run on its own and when i would give it throttle to keep it on it would missfire ...horribly. The only way to keep it running on its own was to spray carbclean around a certain area of the intake manifold. i came to the unverified conclusion that it has a leak somewhere on the intake, and since its still under warranty off to the dealer it goes. they call me back saying one of the cylinders has little to no compression ! The service writer claims it may have a burnt valve or cracked head! has anybody ever had this prob with their hemi ? It caught me way off guard

broken valve spring......very common...... you can replace it yourself
