I have a 2000 Dakota with 130K miles on it, and it is ticking lately. Noise comes and goes and varies in intensity. Sometimes it barely clicks, and other times it raps pretty good. Seems to only do this at idle and does it warm or cold. Am I hearing lifter clatter or might this be the timing chain banging against the T-case?? (just put a fresh 5W30 oil change in it and the new oil made no difference)
Any ideas or advice would be appreciated. Thx

Back before i replace my 4.7L with another one...the ticking ended up being a burnt out Valve. i'd get it checked out ASAP, good luck man.. :tup:

i had a pretty good amount of 'Ticking/Clatter' coming from my '01 4.7QC, took it tot he shop and they said it was a "Flexpipe" that was loose. Tightened it up and no more sound. Hope thats not like 'Blinker Fluid'...

time to take the valve covers off and pull out the good old chiltons, probably a bad valve or a spring losing tension, chances are its probably normal with that amount of mileage, mine has 149k and it does it every cold morning and cold evening, turns out according to one source its just wear and tear not much can be done.
