Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

Is it just one lifter or are all of them chattering? If you measure your oil pressure with a manual gauge what is it @ idle? When did this start?

Talk soon,
