Tappet/lash adjuster Noise on Dodge Ram 50

A tappet/lash adjuster noise may be noted from the 3.0L engines. Our technicians tell us that proper testing of the lash adjusters  should be performed before replacing any parts. A full crankcase of clean engine oil is necessary before attempting to determine if any lash adjusters are bleeding down and causing a noise concern.
