Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
I have a 1996 dodge. ram 3500 with the v10. There is s knocking noise from under left valve cover. it goes away at about 2500 rpm untill it shifts then it's right back.
If it's upper engine noise it could just be sticking hydraulic lifters if the sound isn't constant. If it's more pronounced at a cold start that is probably all it is. A couple of things to try is Lucas Oil Stabilizer in your oil. If the sound reduces more than usual then it's the lifters. You can also try doing a seafoam treatment on the engine. There are several instructional videos on youtube for that. Also check to see if there are any Dodge v10 truck forums. They could have more specific info on the lifter tick.
