No TSB'S on it so that's a good sign.
Im going to switch to a higher quality oil than whats probably in it regardless.

I know this thread isn't current, but rather than start a new one I'll ask here.

When I first start my truck for about 1-2 seconds max there is a tick that sounds as if there is no oil in the top end of the engine and then the pump gets the oil where it needs to be and it stops altogether. I know what the hemi tick is, had it in my 06 300C, but this is very loud and aggressive sounding for a second or two at start up. Is this normal? don't ever remember this with my 06 300C that's all. Truck has 9,600 km or about 6K miles roughly

Had an 2007 Hemi and now a 2012 Hemi and they both do it occasionally, never an issue.

My first oil change was free at my dealer, so whatever they use there. It's due for its second oil change shortly so I'll know once I crawl under it

Some oil filters have a check valve in them to prevent the oil from leaking back down through the filter. This helps greatly with cold starts. I don't know if anyone makes an oil filter with a check valve for our engines. I just remember my little Mazda car having them, but you had to buy them from the Mazda dealer. My initial impression of the Mopar oil filter was not all that great. My oil was filthy at 4500 miles and 2 quarts low. My dealer performed that oil change btw. I found the above when I did the 3rd oil change myself. I went to penzoil full synthetic and a K&N oil filter. For the first 800 miles the engine was much quieter. I startedd it the other day and it ticked pretty bad initially. I am going to check the oil tonight before leaving work. I am wondering if this engine is going through oil too fast, possible causing the excess valvetrain clatter. I'm not terribly worried about the noise, just more curious about oil consumption.

I don't know about the hemi engines, but I can list about 10 other engines that will use synthetic use (ie burn) I was under the assumption all engine will use a little syn oil between changes.
