valves rattles from a cold start
I have a 1997 dodge ram 1500 5.2 and from a cold start the right side valves rattles and
the oil light takes about 3 seconds befote it goes out and stops rattling why is that?
Wrong oil, wrong oil filter missing the anti drain back valve, oil pump getting weak, valve lash adjustment too loose, excessive cam bearing clearance, worn camshaft but now we are getting in deep from here. Try the easy stuff first.
Thank you very much motor has 146000 miles so I've been trying to decide on get another truck with a payment or do all my repairs thats needed on this truck NOT SURE
That sounded like me some years back my rig developed oil pressure problems, decided to fix it, found out it was just my oil pump, replaced the pump and screen, primed the pump started it up, no more lifter noise, it was fine when I finally sold it at 225000 miles.
