That could mean the either your oil pump is going out or maybe oil filter clogged

Dodge 2004 2500 ram with hemi why the lifter ticking noise ??


that motor uses hydraulic tappets

you can try an engine flush or use a thinner /thicker oil
if no better replace the tappets that are damaged

as the cold engine starts it takes a while for the oil from the sump
to fill the tappets
but after the oil gets there and is warmed
that tapping noise should go away

failures
they can hammer out
lack of oil changes can clog the oil holes to the tappets
the choice of thickness of oil that suits your local conditions will have a factor

I had heads replaced on my 2004 Dodge team 1500 5.7 hemi due to valve and spring issue. Then lifters became very noisy so replaced those also. Truck runs ok but lifters are making noise at start up now...


the hydraulics will leak down after the engine has been stopped for a while . The noise on start up will be until the oil again fills the lifters. If it is getting really cold (under 32F of close to 0 c) then you may have to consider a lighter viscosity grade of engine oil (10w-20 or 15w -30) the manual will have the recommended viscosity of oil for cold areas or you can check with the oil catalogue at any auto parts store.

Loud lifter noise


Over time and miles the lifters tend to collapse and the only way to quiet the noise is to replace them or use something like lucas to try to keep the pressure up in the lifters. If you did replace the lifters it would help with performance because when the lifters start to collapse the valves do not open all of the way. Hope this helps!

2005 dodge magnum 3.5 liter engine. 10 deg start engine noise


these have a problem with the overhead cams, one or more of the bolts break which restricts the oil flow to the lifters.

Truck noises


Sounds like lifters are bleeding down. Try doing an oil change with a thicker oil or even go synthetic. I use Lucas oil additive and it seems to work pretty good.

Lifter noise at start-up


it's simply means that the lifter empties after a while so when you start it it fills up again and the you're good to go.

it's not very dangerous for the engine but in my opinion it's better to have it replaced...
