Hi all, Well, since new, I'd been dealing with an annoying start up ticking in my hemi. Worse during cooler weather, but still noticeable in warmer temperatures. I had it to the dealer in the summer and left it with them while I went on holidays. Came back and was told that the noise was all normal.
Now that winter is come and the noise was there every morning, back to the dealer once more, this time with me operating the truck while the technician listened outside. Ah Ha! the tech said the noise was not normal at all. To make a long story shorter, all the lifters were replaced and no more noise. Now I can love my truck again.
Oh ya, for reference, my unit has 40,000 kms on it.
