I’m the second owner of a 2012 Dodge Challenger R/T with a 5.7 liter hemi with 97,000 miles. The common lifter/camshaft failure occurred on cylinder #3. Luckily my extended warranty will cover the replacement of the camshaft and lifters. Going forward, is there any preventative maintenance I should have performed to avoid another catastrophic failure?

It is a leaking exhaust manifold, or a rocker arm used by the multi displacement system
