Muddy will become famous soon enough

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Just can't believe that the rod hasn't broken through yet after 56,000 miles. I know my way around motorcycle engines more then car though so I don't know. Was just trying to figure out if others with the 4.7L where having the same problem. I've had a 2001 w/ a 5.2, a 2003 w/ a 5.7, a 2005 w/ a 4.7 and this one. They've all had the valve tap so I knew that was normal. Just don't know much about this current generation 4.7L. Thanks again for your help. Like I said, once I'm able to crawl in my truck again, hopefully next week, I'll take it yet to another dealer and find out if they tell me the same thing or actually find a problem. At least this one came with a lifetime powertrain warrenty.
