Does the truck run ok? I have some important info concerning the 5.7 engine, there's a class suit against Chrysler concerning your engine.

The truck runs good,plenty of power.When idling it sounds like tapping comming from the lower end of engine(like tappits used to sound).It does not smoke going down the road and does not appear to use oil.I could not find any recalls on that engine,any info is welcome,thanks.
