Question about 2005 Dodge Dakota
My 2005 dodge dakota has a rattle for 5 seconds at start up and goes away when vehicle is cold. When the vehicle is warm it doesn't happen. Any suggestions what it may be?
Sounds like a rocker arm is out of adjustment or one of the rocker arms are worn more than the rest. If you find one loose rocker arm and the rest are tight then the entire rocker assembly will need to be removed and the one rocker arm will have to be replaced. Thats on a V6 and V8 models . Now on the four cylinder you have to remove the timing belt cover,unbolt the timing belt and hold tension on it to keep the belt from jumping off the crankshaft gear. Remove the rocker arm cover and you will have to remove the cam to get to the roller rocker arms. There is alot of work to do to get this job done. If you do not have all the tools to do this with, then it would be better to take the truck to a mechanics shop for repairs. Hope this will help you.
