what type of fuel do you use for a 1999 slt 1500 v8 magnum pick up"?having alot of engine rattling ,pinging or something,been putting in 87 octane.
i just bought this 1999 dodge 4 by 4 v8 magnum slt and i have been using 87 octane fuel,
I have been hearing alot of knocking /rattling/pinging only during acceleration.idles good
and does not do it when i am easy on the gas but the moment i hit it i here the rattling
noise like a bolt is loose or something. a mechanic said heads maybe another said lower
rods and all said what type of gas do you use ??????????help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Buy a higher octane rating gas if it's pinging on 87. Try buying the next higher grade until it stops all the noise.
right, 87 is recommended, maybe you have carbon build up, a vacuum leak. The rattling noise might be a heat shield on your exhaust.
alot of times your timeing could be off have that checked and make sure it is timed right. That alone will cause pinging. I have the same truck and from day one I run 89 octane and I have no problems. Good Luck!!!!!!
I got same truck its drive me absolute insane butt i only good 93 i feel like drive mercedes i would like find answers how can i drop on 87 please help me
