    I noticed on way home today from a trip. A sound. That to me sounds like loose lifters. Coming from I believe the passenger side front if the car.
    Can hear it with motor up around 2 k. Shove clutch in (while going down the road) it would go away. Was dark when got home but have to try finding it tomarrow
    Any clue as to what could be?

    Possibly the Hemi Tick. Lifter noise is normal for the Hemi V8.

    If it gets worse, send it in to the dealer.

    Check the oil level as GP said.
    I would also see if the noise goes away when you press in the clutch.
    Does it make this noise at start up? Or after warm?

    How many miles on the car,, Should be able to hear that kind of noise if your driving and inside the car,, I could see a small tick at idle and hearing it on the outside of the car

    Mine never used a drop of oil.Or made any ticking noise lots of other cool noise.
    My old Hemis had the "Hemi Tick" but they were full roller lifters with huge cam lobes.

    I would think being new and maybe low oil. Part of break in. I know these engines have some hours on them before installed in the cars but they are still built tight.

    I'll put that out after I put some more miles on the car and run some tests. But you can clearly tell in many vids recently posted, even at cold start car sat > 2days, it's gone. Intentionally.
