Default noisy lifter or ? on cold starts

hey im new to the forum and was wondering i have an o9 ram 5.7 and have noticed that on cold starts and even when the truck has been used and warmed up but sitting for 3to 4 hours i get what sounds like a noisy lifter but when it warms up it goes away i only have 10000km anyone else noticed it or do i have a bad lifter and will it clear up in time

Thanks

It's possible you have an exhaust leak at the manifold. Take it to the dealer and let them have a look at it.

Well i thought about exhaust leak and think i can rule that one out as again this morning started truck light raddle and slowly goes away but this morning i only ran the truck for 15 minutes went inside work for about 1 hour then re-started truck and it is a lifter as it had colapsed but was only noisy for about 2-3 seconds then went quit i guess if it gets worst ill bring it to the dealer.

Thanks again

It could be a lifter . My 5.9 has had a slight tick to it since new . I now have 140,000 on it and it's still there . Doesn't bother me . I'd rather live with it than have someone else playing around with my motor . Don't forget to stop by the newbie section and introduce yourself .

Just had mine replaced a few weeks ago along with a piece of door weatherstriping that also has a TSB.
