timing belt first.
REMOVAL STEPS Preparation: Battery ground cable
are you there do you want more info on how to remove timing belt??
Jason: Ok this is more work than I anticipated. There is a large knock in the front of the motor that goes away with increased RPM. At idle sounds like loose coke can in belt assembly. I thought it might be pump. Any ideas before I rip apart front of motor for no reason. Pump is not leaking. My thought was it might be the pump shaft.
take the belts off one at a time till the noise is gone, if the noise is still present with belts removed the it is possible water pump or somthing else engine related.
it goes away higher rpm?
Excellent. That is what we will do. Also: I'm a computer tech with 20 years customer service. I thought about doing what you are doing. Pardon my asking but are you making what you thought you would? Yes at higher RPM.
I work at a real dodge dealer during the day, at just answer everyone is a real person that does this from home or like me at home and when i am not fixing a dodge at the dealer.
I worked 12 years on all makes and models, 8 years chevy, 2 years ford, 2 years toyota, and now 3 years dodge
I suppose if you answered questions all day long you could make money...

Yes sorry wife came home.
I appreciate the answers. I'm going to see if we can figure this out.
