I for one, am sick of hearing about the 4.7 lunching motors because of a ticking noise, and I was recently told by dealer that bolts in the thermstat housing could break-off, because I wanted to replace thermostat! This must be some "JUNK" motor Dodge stuck in the Ram Trucks! I'll be heading off any future problems I may have with this truck by TRADING FOR A DIFFERENT MAKE OF TRUCK, while mine is still running good. Ford or Chevy here I come! I hate to change makers, but if they have this many problems with this motor who's to say the other motors don't have these problems, except for the diesel of course, and I cannot afford a diesel at this time!!
