2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Sporadic Clicking Noise

March 31, 2015

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

Our 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has developed a sporadic "click-click-click-clicking" noise coming from the engine bay.

I first noticed it when I got off the highway after my commute home and was stopped at a light. Making matters more difficult is that it doesn't always make the noise. Sometimes it's there on start-up, sometimes it doesn't happen until after driving it for a while. Other times I noticed it while driving, but then it had stopped by the time I got home.

As far as the truck's actual operation, it's working perfectly fine.

We're not sure if this clicking noise is in any way related to the recent work we had done on the Ram after its apparent fuel system problem, but the truck is due for a service soon and we'll have the dealer look into the noise then.
