Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

I would pull the valvecover and inspect the rocker arms and then see if you have a weak lifter..

Let me know what you find,

Brad

Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 2 years ago

If you don't find a broken rocker then rock the rocker arm and see if you can push in on the lifter.. If it's weak then you will need to pull the heads to replace them. If your HEMI is equipped with MDS then you most likely have a bad rocker or lifters...

Glad I could help,

Brad

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
