02 4.7 Knock sounds like a lifter
I have a 2002 Dakota w/ a 4.7L. . . . I noticed a little tic a few months ago. The truck ran great. Well, the tic got worse. Now, Ive got a knockin. I pulled the valve cover from the driver side the noise was comming from, replaced the lash adjusters. This didnt fix the knock!
My oil pressure is still good. engine runs great. Stil have knock. I think deep in the engine.
Any suggestions? thinking that I may have bent a con rod. Also, this truck is a hard starter, Takes 2-3 times of rolling over before she takes off. Most of the time it stays running
