Question about 2003 Dodge Ram Maxi
This noise sounds like a hollow popping, like if a piston head blew a hole in it. the noise will cycle about every 6 seconds and last for about 3 seconds. This is at idle speed and when the rpm increases, so dose the noise, in speed and sound level. This noise can be heard over the other diesel like clattering noises, that supposed to be "Normal" even when your about 25 ft from the truck This was evident shortly after warranty replaced the exhaust manifolds . I have tried everything such as different gas types, mid and regular.The last 20,000 Km I'm using Castrol synthetic oil, top of the line oil and air filters and Shell gas. There is no loss of power and besides the noises, the truck runs great. I have not found anyone/shop to solve or find out what the problem is, I am concerned because there is only 8,000 KM left on my warranty of 60,000 Km, go figure
Sounds like an exhaust valve has a crack or piece broken out of it. take it to a engine machine shop and let them listen to it. could need a head removed to fix
