Just curious and I am really not too worried....

...my 03 Durango (which I just got a couple weeks ago) has the 5.9....Now, at idle or when I am driving, I can hear a bit of tapping.....not ping and not knowck...justwhat I percieve as a litle lifter noise....

Now, my 92 Dakota 318 has the same kinda noise, and had it for 120k miles, so I am notworried....but just making sure this is still normal...

Its not LOUD but its thee...thoughts?

Its because the magnum motors have roller lifters all roller motors sound like that.
