Tensioner noise doesn't tick, it has a totally different sound when using a stethoscope, I have worked on several crappy Dodge and Chevy engines with that very issue. The Olds 3800 was the worst. You'll hear chain noise inside the casing as well as a slapping noise. My other question to the owner is , if it is tapping as hard as it sounds why hasn't the "Knock Sensor" picked it up? IF the 4.7 even has one.

Pardon me! I guess my ASE and Chrysler certifications and 15 + years experience are clouding my vision! Let me see...a 318 CID is equal to 5.2 liters, right? I'd bet my paycheck that the thumbnail you have up there is a 4.7L. Chrysler did NOT offer a 5.2 OHC. Period. And yes, tensioners CAN tick. Bottom line - stop talking out of your ass.

The 4.7 is the 318ci......5.9 is the 360ci and the 5.7 is a 345ci

Seriously, Jimbo...you're clueless. The 4.7 is 287 cubic inches. The 5.2 is 318 cubic inches. The 5.9 is 360 cubic inches.

Yes the 4.7 has TWO knock sensors. They're designed to pick up spark knock, not tapping noises from the engine.

Have you EVER studied the block dimension between the 318, 340, 360 and the 361?.....hahaha.........Your LITERS is coming souly from the cylinder head, NOT the block.

Seriously. How stupid can you be? My certifications are from the ASE not ASC. What in the hell do you think block dimensions have to do with displacement? If you knew anything, you'd know the heads have NOTHING to do with calculating CID. Calculating CID is based on bore, stroke and number of cylinders. You need to pull your head out of your ass and stop trying to mislead people with your rambling BS. Idiot.

dude if a 4.7 is a 318 then what is the 5.2 oh wait its a 318, ive went to school worked on my ase, and have a 5.9 and a 4,.7 had a 5.2 check ur local dodge dealership, check this out The new 287 is just that, new, sharing almost nothing but a heritage with the ol'reliables. For starters, it's the first true production Mopar V8 mill to incorporate aluminum cylinder heads ( okay, we know about the 1965 A-990 Hemi ) a plastic intake manifold, and magnesium valve covers. Nothing is re-hashed here, and the combustion chambers are almost hemispherical ! from a reputable mopar action info. heres 318 The 318 (5.2 Liter V-8)


read this im sure its correct

http://www.allpar.com/mopar/318.html
and this
http://www.allpar.com/mopar/47.html

plus look at the site for each engine size they have the cubes listed dude

im statin what is listed

i had a 94 ram with a 5.2 (318) i have 98 dakota r/t with 5.9 (360)
the ram i have now is 4.7


ah remerson let jimbo read this and google it if he dont believe it and then he cannot argue what he doesnt know about

knowledge ive stumped the dodge dealerships around me and know more then the owner, and service department do when i come in ever so often for lil things they ask me questions. pls had them try to bribe me to work for them but i make 4x as much doing what i do now construction.
but dude look at my post go to the right top of ti see were it says engine, it says 287ci next to it, go to urs and try a 5.2 itll s

btw sohc means it has a single cam over the head,so my 4.7 is sohc bc it has a single camover each head, dohc means dual overhead cam, bc it has 2. read thsi for thought ay 318. ive rebuilt over 30 engines thru magnums so i know what im doing

Single overhead camshaft (SOHC) is a design in which one camshaft is placed within the cylinder head. In an inline engine this means there is one camshaft in the head, while in a V engine or a horizontally-opposed engine (boxer; flat engine) there are two camshafts: one per cylinder bank. and

from this listing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overhead_camshaft


this is proof ur wrong dude so back off whne ur tryin to tell ppl things u dont know about it can cause them to screw up sumthing and i dont wanna see someone use wrong advice and do that bc some guy thought he knew things he didnt. post ur proof or stfu ty

should give old jimbo proof hes wrong
