I have a 2000 Ram Sport with 5.9 with only 58000 miles. Sounds like one of my lifters is Ticking and wondering if there was any easy way to determine what is causing this. I already tried the five minute oil flush didnt help. Is this a common problem? seems kinda soon for a lifter to be making noise. are the rockers and adjustable? any help would be great thanks

are 100% sure its a lifter and not an injector ? the lifter's do tick and u can hear them at idle . stock rockers are none adjustable . try seafoam in engine . follow the direction's on how much to put in then drive about 100 mile's or so then do an oil change . i have heard of useing some marven's mystery oil but have never tried it . hope this help's ya out

some injector just tick louder then others . the pink top furd's i'm running now tick even louder .

if a tick per say gets so loud u need to turn the stereo up then yes u have a problem and need to pin point where its coming from .... use a stethascope or even a long pipe and listen around the intake .
