Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
Eninge starts,but knocking/ticking sound...clogged lifters?
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.

SOURCE: 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 misfire
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.

Depended on the mileage and if the truck has been worked hard. It could be a few things, A worn out hydraulic lifter, a worn crank bearing, old engine oil that needs to be changed, or maybe a tired oil pump. Try using a stethoscope to narrow down where the ticking noise is loudest. From there you will have a better idea what the cause is. Take a look at the oil pressure, see if it takes to long in the morning for the oil pressure to start building. Every time you look at something different it will help bring you that much closer to the solution.
