  3. Fingers Crossed...Brake Squeal Resolved

    2019 Dodge Ram Forum - DT
    I think (praying and crossing fingers) that the brake squeal on my truck has been resolved, once and for all, after 4 times to the dealer. I had the same brake squealing that A LOT of people have been complaining about. Typically happened with light press of the brake going between 45-70 mph...

    Body & Interior
    I've got a 2014 1500 Express that I've had for about a month now and I've noticed that the power door locks are REALLY loud. They work fine and the noise isn't any of the buzzing or screeching noises I've seen described elsewhere that were a bad actuators, they just make a very loud, echoing...
  5. Rear end click when taking off

    I am consistently getting a "click click" when moving from a stop. This happens in drive and reverse. It is coming from the rear of the truck. Being that I am new to owning a truck I am not familiar with servicing driveshafts and Ujoints. Perhaps something needs grease? Thanks for any replies!

    So a while ago I posted about a ticking on start up. I had a broken passenger side exhaust bolt so I replaced that. Was still getting random ticking on start up. It would randomly happen, could have been sitting overnight, could have just turned it off to fill the tank, no pattern at all...

  9. Belt, Alternator/Pulleys squeeking at idle?

    2012 Dodge Ram Forum
    While my 5.7L is idling it has a constant squeak like the belt is slipping but its not, almost sounds like the pulleys either on the alternator or air conditioning compressor are making the noise. Any ideas? Do I need a new belt?
  10. THIS IS NOT A HEMI TICK QUESTION --- Rap on startup

    5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    I have a 2014 Ram 1500 Express with the 5.7 in it. Every now and then, when first started, it will rap loudly for just a second or two. It seems to happen more often when the outside air temps are hotter, which leads me to believe it's the oil in the hydraulic lifters bleeding back out of them...

    5.7L V8 Specific Topics
    I finally sorted out where I was hearing this strange random thumping sound. It appeared to be coming from the back of the truck, but I checked everything - everything was tight, and nothing was swinging. The noise would occur at any speed, over any kind of terrain (smooth or gravel), on the...
