Engine Knock After Cold Start May Not Be a Concern on Dodge Dynasty

Some engines may experience a cold engine knock that lasts for three to five minutes after start-up, which is often misdiagnosed as a valve lifter noise. This noise is commonly not an indication of a failure and should not be a reliability or durability concern.
