broken bolts..every mechanic steered me to lifters...I got under the truck, there are missing and broken bolts. What a nightmare. Trying now to find how many bolts are needed. Unfortunately, I have to drive it to the dealership to get the gasket and bolts and I have no idea how much damage this may cause. Ive been driving it for a month with that awful motorscooter "tick". The engine sounds sooooooooooo loud. -
i have had the ticking sound and its getting worse. I have 106k on the truck and am going to get to a shop for an estimate. -
passenger side 2 rear manifold bolts heads came off over 800 to be repaired -
Initially noticed a slight ticking one day at start up. Noise went away quickly...a few weeks later noticed again and became more prudent and recurring. Brought to arrigo dodge and was not pleased with there treatment. At 70k the slight ping has grown to an incredible knock at low speeds and start up. Currently 9/3/14 and at a different dodge dealer working with warranty and service dept to address issues. Truck is 2010 dodge ram quad cab hemi sport -

Noticed a ticking & irritating "rattling noise.Just replaced the exhaust including catalytic converter last summer and noise started soon after.

I have the same problem on my truck. I currently have 67,000 miles on it. Of course, this is one of the many problems that I have had with my truck. I'm very disappointed in my dodge truck. I wish I had a more solid truck than what I currently have. -
had a bad ticking noise coming from the driver side of the engine so I checked the exhaust manifold bolts and studs and found one stud that fell out into my hand. I took it to the dealer and they diagnosed it and found 3 more broken studs, yes all 4 studs were broke off in the head and I also had a blown gasket. Had that all fixed it has ran great now I just blew the head gasket very disapointed that a truck with 76,000 miles has already had this many engine problems. -
