Damn dealer I thought buying the car at a big dealer would be safer than those Crap holes dealership Gordyn answered 3 years ago I bought my Challenger brand new last year, and when I was test diving it I was thinking this thing has a lot valve train noise. The arrigo wpb made a amateur job and i start to a fight with dodge because they did a shit job and now my car is making more noise also making a new noise when i put in drive position and factory warranty is a fake warranty because the dodge machanics does not know how to fix my car for two times and i start to think to sell it and buy a mustang again. The suspension can still be a bit bouncy at times, but when loaded up with passengers and cargo, the Ram's ride quality is downright comfortable. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, and a five-speed overdrive automatic is optional. According to the manufacturer, short bed 1500 models can tow 2,900 pounds up to a maximum of 8,750 pounds when properly equipped. When I first found out I was nervous too but for every one person with this problem there are like 5 people with 150-200k+ miles on their original Hemi and no issues whatsoever. I guess it's been a long time since people have had to put a new donut or tighten there exhaust.
This message will be removed once you have signed in. But I love the car and have been wanting one for many years, so I bought it anyways, and figured it was just some bad gas the dealer put in or that's just how these new hemis sound.

As the engine gets some miles on it, the piston slap will get louder. I'll swing by the dealer tomorrow and get a new gasket and try to find an easier way to put it back in. It's sad is what it really is.
I'm amazed that outta all the forums and chats I've only seen one person mention the exhaust. If you do have a third party warranty get on the phone now and ask any question of every situation you could think of for what will be covered. It seems the lifters in the Hemi get sticky after a while and the Seafoam loosens up deposits and frees them up. I have some errands to run this morning and will do some preliminary checking on the car this afternoon. In the smaller Rams, such as the test model -- a short-bed, regular-cab Ram Sport -- the Hemi means it accelerates with authority and sounds just great. I've built many a engine, Chevy engines that is, and none of them have ever had this noise unless I was running a solid lifter cam, and even then those cams were quieter than the hemi in my car. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, and a five-speed overdrive automatic is optional.
At first I thought it was an exhaust leak, but after inspecting the exhaust I don't think so. If the ticking stops, so does the engine. Valve tapping can be caused by several different problems, including a lack of lubricant or a problem in the springs that close and open the valves. The 1500 comes with a choice of two bed sizes: the 76. As long as it ain't knocking I'll keep on rocking! However, three other engine choices are optional: a 4.
If not what the cause and how much it cost to fix it? So, again have it checked.

Using fuel additives or a high quality gasoline can help prevent this from occurring and may be able to correct or minimize a hemi tick. Low engine oil can cause a lifter to tap and can cause permanent damage. Took it to the dealership, they listened to it for a bit and ended up taking the engine apart and replacing some goodies inside.
However, some are impressed with the Ram's new fuel-saving technology. Ken answered 11 months ago I have a 2008 Ram 1500 5. And it was on here. No more lead obviously gone since Jan 1 1986 and not even any sulfur…. Ultimately, reviewers see the 5. This is why they add the moly coat to the skirt so that it will quiet down. The lifter location projects normal lifter noise out the sides of the engine regardless of running on 4 or 8 cylinders.

I don't recall hearing anyone changing them even on big builds. But compared with other big trucks, Ram Mega Cab steers and corners with confidence and without drama. I think they are pretty inexpensive to replace. The newest Mega Cab sits on the same frame and suspension as the larger three-quarter-ton. Register now to gain access to all of our features. Take a look at my thread, I picked up a 5.
My makes a ticking sound when idling but it makes a loud clicking sound while driving which to me sounds like a beat up Honda civic or something that has a 4 banger engine instead of a v8. Sorry that's what I meant. Mix that with 10% ethyl alcohol and you have a really bad mix. I've since driven the car a couple of times and the tick has not returned so I believe this licked the problem. The fuel injectors for those cylinders are shut off so fuel doesn't puddle behind the intake valve. For improved fuel economy, the front axle driveshaft is automatically disengaged when in two-wheel drive.
And yes, somehow new cams are pretty cheap, surprisingly. Both a major damage theme. Tapping and ticking noises can be caused by various problems in the motor, however these noises are most likely caused by a lack of lubrication, and may be a sign of a more significant problem. . I can literally spin the push rod freely so it's really loose.
Phil and Greg noticed it too as I pulled in to the pits. It almost sounds like a lifter tick of some sort put the car will run its ass off and doesn't miss a beat, but there's always this thought in my head wondering what the hell, why does this thing tick like that. It starts ticking about 2 mins into warming up. Just don't use it on any older motor that has any oil leaks, or it will make them worse. A sizable camp find the Ram's fuel economy to be poor.
