Thanks for your response. That's kind of where I've come to after further research. Didn't realized the new 4.7 is a long block, completely different from my 4.7. So it wouldn't be a drop in any more...

Rebuilding 4.7, what would you mod?

My '04 1500 is still very reliable, but it's getting tired, with 207k miles. Engine ticks even when warm, doesn't have much power (not that it ever did) and I can now smell oil. It doesn't consume...

Well, it's better, but I'm not sure what exactly fixed it. I got a chance to drop the pan yesterday and go through all the things you listed. Nothing felt loose, but I pulled the filter and snout...

HemiLonestar is correct. I mean the gearshift cable. That's all that is mentioned in the manual, that it may be "out of adjustment". But doesn't tell me where to find it, nor how to adjust it, nor...

For the record, I did find a cable that runs from the throttle to the transmission linkage like the repair manual stated. But I don't see any way to adjust it. There is about 1/2" of play at the...

I will double check all those things and begin the hunt for a more detailed scan tool. All the filters are new within about 500 miles. I was careful with the snout and did not remove the filter...

That's what I thought: 14.1. Close enough to make 11.4 seem correct via dyslexia. I doubt it's the battery but I'll check that first. The "bong" was just the chime that sounds when the check...

Had an interesting adventure today, while driving about 30 miles up the mountain to around 11,000 ft. I hear "bong" and the CHECK GAUGES light was lit up. I look around and find the volt gauge...

My 2004 Ram 1500 with 4.7 is now > 195k. Shifts fine, runs great, still doesn't burn oil. Although I noticed a loud clackity noise this morning (not the typical ticking when cold) and found my fan...
