Default 2013 RAM 1500 Hemi sport noise

Hi,

I am looking to buy this 2013 hemi sport 8 speed (fully loaded). While I was at the dealership, I noticed some kind of sound coming from the engine (see attched link). At the time when I took this video, the engine was running for 30 minutes (warmed up). Dealership says its NORMAL. I wanted to check with you guys if this is considered as normal before I sign the documents. Any thoughs on this is appreciated Thanks

Sorry I don't know what exactly that is. But if that is normal then my truck is not normal. I have not heard any strange noises like that at all in my 8 speed sport. I would definitely have a professional that is not from the dealership check that out. Unless somebody here on the forums can tell you what that is.

Why is the truck so dirty? Is it used? I can't believe there is a used 8 speed already.

If it's at the dealer, why not compare it to another truck with the same drivetrain on the lot?

Whoever test drove it must have been watching this commercial before they hit the dealer:

Wow that definitely sounds like there is a problem. I would say NOT normal.

Is that one of those v6 diesels? I am not an expert on Hemi engines but I have owned an 06 R/T / R/T Charger and currently drive a 2011 MAX R/T Charger and neither of them sound like that. There is a known ping or tick with the Hemi but i've never heard mine sound like that. (and I have driven them very hard) If this is the only Hemi on the lot I would look for a new dealership or build and order a new one.

I've got a black '13 Sport CC (Not the 8-speed) but it does not have that unsettling noise. And I'm no master mechanic but I'd have to believe that is not normal, nor good. (Not to mention my truck is already back at the dealer with issues). You should probably find another truck/dealership like blkramsport2k13 suggested (that is not the infamous Hemi knock).
