The ticking is getting worse. It starts ticking about 2 mins into warming up. Do not rely on Dealer or manufacturer steps to follow. Be proactive, or you may eat the repair cost. Because of this issue I am convinced that I will be doing a hemi swap in the very near future to get away from this defect that dodge is just sweeping under the carpet so to speak. I know without a video its hard to diagnose but the car has 112000 on an 07.
The vehicle was not repaired. My husband says it sounds like a wristpin knock. Please help as I thought I was covered and don't know what to do. From there you will have a better idea what the cause is. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that the engine lifters needed to be replaced. If not what the cause and how much it cost to fix it? The failure mileage was 88,000. I have an insurance adjuster going out tomorrow morning to assess the damage and the problem.
I am still paying the loan for this car. I read of many, many other people having this same issue. The dealer replaced an exhaust manifold gasket, and 2 bolts. Mechanic told me that my engine was shot. We always run synthetic oil and lucas stabilizer and mopar filter. That is the way my issue started. Car stalled in middle of street.
Little did she know that the warrant expires at 70,000 miles and she was at 69954. The fix is to replace both sides of the rocker arm assembly. Believe me, I learned the hard way. Do not assume the reasonable thing to do is their correct way to proceed with a problem. I had to have the car towed home as I was thirty miles away and discovered the engine valve in piston 2 had broken and shattered, causing an engine failure, with the only repair being a complete engine rebuild or replacement. This is so ridiculous having to replace this 2 times. Over the last 2 weeks my car was making ticking noises but it was not constant,I let it go.
It started getting worse and worse. I had the rocker problem at 100k miles on the passenger side of the engine. It could be a few things, A worn out hydraulic lifter, a worn crank bearing, old engine oil that needs to be changed, or maybe a tired oil pump. Unable to load the video due to recorded on my phone. I just heard thats why they started knocking, is it not possible to drill out the old pin and press in a new one, im asking here to try and make a fix for this problem, i know what my problem is and i know its an easy fix but i wanna make a complete fix for it Reviving this a bit. Please really look into it, thank you. The contact also detected an odor of burning oil through the vents and smoke appeared from the front passenger side of the vehicle.
After speaking with a couple of mechanics, I was told the problem may be bad lifters. Put gas in vehicle only to start up making an extremely loud knocking sound. The rocker shaft supplies oil to the lifters. The failure mileage was approximately 85,000. The problem found to have been in vehicle when we purchased it.
The contact stated that while attempting to start the vehicle, a loud clicking noise could be heard as the vehicle stalled. Something causes the short runner valve to go bad, and the valve opens and shuts causing a loud ticking to come from the intake plenum. On Monday I had to have my car towed because it broke down on my way home from work. If it rotates, the oil passeges don't line up anymore and starve the lifters of oil. Warranty co refused to pay. Mind you vehicle had been running like a charm.
It's not the valves hitting the valve cover. Hopefully, some of you just have this issue, and not something more serious. The Reason is What a break down means to them only. Called Dodge and asked if there was a recall on the engine problem. The third time I tried to start the car and heard this loud ticking sound. The manufacturer was contacted about the failure.
