OIl Press and lifter noise
OK so my Daytona runs 18-20PSI at Hot Idle, goes to 45+ at operating revs and such. Seems I have a bit off lifter "click" both hot and cold but only at dead idle.
I am thinking about going with a slightly heavier oil (Castrol Syntec 10w-40) but the owners manual says to run 5w-20 or the MDS may not work properly.
I have the 8yr-80k mile warranty and it's a "Certified" car, so if it pukes a lifter, it's dodge's problem, but it bugs me!
I also thought about some Lucas Synthetic additive. I have used it before and think it's a pretty good product.
Does anybody else have a noisy lifter or two? What oil is everybody else running?
Am I just being WAY to anal about the lifter noise?
More iritated than concerned about it, a little feedback please?
