If you have not been too good about doing oil changes clogged lifters is very possible. There are many products to flush your oil, but what I prefer is to change your oil and filter , put in 1 quart of marvel mystery oil in place of one qt of oil, run for about 100 miles then change oil and filter again

If it's doesn't sound like it's your engine which i am thinking not. Check to see if there any heat shield that may have come lose, like the heat shield to the spark plug wire or heat sheild along the down pipe. 
Good luck and hope this was the rattling your taking about as it heats up it expands and tighten's up.

Dodge recommends new plugs at 60k. If that engine, I don't remember off hand, has a coil pack over overy plug, try switching the coil to a different plug and see if the missfire moves. If it does then you need a coil, if it doesnt then its the plug.

I have a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 with 166k still ticking after lifters replaced.


If there was a problem that caused the rocked to become dislodged I would have checked the rocker bushes and shaft and replace both. The rocker where it works on the end of the valve wears a recess that will move and then click back into place. I would use a 20w-50 grade oil and additives work at reducing friction . IF you need it to thicken the oil then there is something worn out.

I have a 1996 dodge. ram 3500 with the v10. There is s knocking noise from under left valve cover. it goes away at about 2500 rpm untill it shifts then it's right back.


If it's upper engine noise it could just be sticking hydraulic lifters if the sound isn't constant. If it's more pronounced at a cold start that is probably all it is. A couple of things to try is Lucas Oil Stabilizer in your oil. If the sound reduces more than usual then it's the lifters. You can also try doing a seafoam treatment on the engine. There are several instructional videos on youtube for that. Also check to see if there are any Dodge v10 truck forums. They could have more specific info on the lifter tick.

Why doesnt my 2006 dodge ram show codes for faulty lifter or or oil pressure. My truck makes a loud ticking sound coming from passenger side. sounds as if the lifters are knocking. took it in to the shop...


Most mechanical problems, such as noisy lifters or bearings, can't be detected by the engine controller and thus there won't be any codes set UNLESS the problem is causing a misfire or emission related concern. The ticking noise may well be a lifter even though none of them appear to be collapsed as the spring inside them will keep the lifter expanded but isnt' strong enough to keep them from being noisy when the lifter can no longer keep oil under pressure trapped inside. You may have to have someone do some further testing and inspecting to figure out exactly where the noise is coming from. Good luck, hope this helps!

Load ticking at start up and continues for a while on my 04 F150


If the ticking sound sounds like it is coming from the top of the engine them most likely one of the lifters is bleeding off while it is sitting. If the ticking goes away after a few minutes of operation then the lifter has pumped its self back up and is operating properly. There is not any damage you can do to the engine by not replacing the lifter at this point, just the annoying ticking sound when first starting. If at some point the ticking continues after running for a few minutes the lifter has malfunctioned and should be replaced. Just remember, if you replace one lifter you should replace all of them.

My Crossfire clatters upon start up. Once the


I also own a '04 Crossfire and the clatter upon start up is very common. Although I believe it is the lifters, I've been told that the Mercedes fuel injectors are the main culprit to the ticking. But like you I have been agitated by this since buying the car. Recently mine went from just a ticking to a definite top end knocking and am being told today by the dealer that it is the lifters sticking. Don't know if a valve job and lifters will resolve the initial ticking, but I have my fingers crosses considering the $1018.00 price quote.

You are right, most likely a lifter !!Crank shaft bearing (rod) may be, or a broken piston ring will do it also, while you have it apart check these!

The sound you are hearing is an exhaust leak. Sounds like a ticking noise, goes away when driving, but can be heard when sitting. You probably have a bad manifold gasket, or loose clamp or broken weld on exhaust. Best way to tell is start it up and listen as to find leak. Or take to a muffler shop and have them repair it.

Very loud tick coming from drivers side, dodge replaced all of the lifters, still the same


on the 5.7 this could be normal as the vehicle has roller lifters. the noise (tapping sound ) resinates down the exhaust and always sounds louder on the drivers side. Hope this helps

Sometimes a valve lifter will stick and cause a ticking it is possible that a valve lifter has lost its prime or it might be that the oil is too thin. Wthout more info my bet would be a lifter
