365ram is on a distinguished road
Default Knocking sound

I have an 01 Dodge Ram Sport that has a 5.9 magnum engine. When the engine is cold it will hold around 60psi of oil pressure and after it warms up it drops to 30psi. Once the motor is warm it will start knocking only under a load or if it is in park or neutral when you rev it up and the oil pressure will rise to about 40psi. Could this be a valve train problem or is it a rod?
