Default Lifter problem

I have a 98 Ram 2500 2wd gas truck and I have a tapping under the hood that gets louder and faster the more gas I give it, I've been told this was a lifter but get many conflicting answers, any ideas? Also I have put it to the flier just a couple times and it almost sounds like it pops out of gear and.it goes nowhere till I let off and give it less gas, sometimes when I go to take off fast it revs way up and doesn't shift till I let off the gas too.

Sounds like you have a couple of unrelated problems there. The lifter issue sounds about right. If you know what you are doing you can take off the valve cover and see if anything is loose, if not take it to a shop. The tranny problem sounds like maybe a pressure governor problem. I'm no tranny expert so just take it for what it's worth. Again, take it to a shop that knows more than we do, but shifting weird is certainly a tranny problem.

Check for an exhaust leak at the manifold before you go tearing the valve covers off.

Could be a exhaust leak . But the 5.9's didn't have a real problem with that . If you pull off the valve cover , look for a bent pushord , or even a broken valve spring before condemning a lifter .

All right I'll try, I just don't know much about working on them myself, so I'll try to find somebody to do it for me.

I've been told now that it's probably a bearing so I'll have to have it looked at to see what the problem really is I guess.

Can you post up a audio clip for us to hear ? Theres a bit of a difference between a tap and a knock .

Disabling the affected cylinder will tell you a lot. If it's a rod knock, the noise will change in volume and intensity but a lifter won't change at all.
