i have an 00 dak with the 3.9 and it makes a ticking sound only when im moving. i just had the header gaskets replaced cause i was told one was leaking but that wasnt the problem. it only seems to do it when the truck is moving i cant hear it if i put it in park and hit the gas. any suggestions?

its a constant noise gets louder as the rpms go up. it sounds like it coming from the drivers side. at idle there is ticking sound i think its coming from under the valve cover.

my truck always had a slight tick at idle which i figure are the injectors, im not too worried about that, i just wish i could figure out this other tick though. ive heard could be the timing chain tensioner, lifter knock, a bad injector. i might start by gettin a set of FMS injectors at least thats the easiest one to start with.

well i finally got my truck into the garage to have it fixed once and for all. turns out the noise was 2 things. a cracked header and a bad drive axle. so i got the axle replaced now im wainting on a replacement header from jba.
