Re: 08 hemi

I get that lifter tapping noise after my 5.7 hemi has been idling for a few minutes as well. I think this is common and read on this form that others with the 5.7 hemi have this "hemi tap" as well. I think its something that you just have to get use to.

Re: 08 hemi

Re: 08 hemi

it def makes a slight exhaust note change, but not like it is leaking...I have a borla cat back with reso delete fyi...from what I have read 5w20 is what you need to use with the 5.7 mds, otherwise the engage/disengage is much more noticeable. kind of a separate issue, but my jeep is idling much better after I cleaned my throttle body. I was amazed how dirty it was...super simple to take a look at it and you may be surprised like I was. jeep runs smoother and idles is a lot less sporadic/choppy!

Re: 08 hemi

thanks everyone,the exhaust is stock for now,the dealer said its the m.d.s switching from 4-8cyl in fuel saver mode,stupid feature lol i paid for a 8cyl not a 4,and i see no fuel savings,i just bought it so i havent changed the oil yet,and it seems pretty difficult to get to the fuel filter,should have got the 4.7 its a faster and lighter motor

You can't change the fuel filter ,it's part of the fuel pump assm.in the tank. that "lifter sound" is the infamous "HEMI TICK" drove me nuts for the 1st month or two. You can check with the dealer and see if there are any computer updates for it, sometimes that helps with the shuddering. Definately nothing thicker than 5w20 with a 5.7

Re: 08 hemi

From what I know, if you were to shift your car down into fifth gear, it disables the 4cyl mode. Correct me if I am wrong, but I am almost positive.

Re: 08 hemi

When in drive just tap the shifter to the left and you'll see [5] in your evic! And yes, just leave it there, or shift all of the time depending on conditions, but whenever you're in drive and you're not in the gas, you'll see Econ (limited cylinder mode) in your evic when in the compass menu. Hope that helps.

Re: 08 hemi

Get one of those oil filter wrenches that holds the bottom of the filter like a socket. They fit on the little flat spots, and you use a ratchet to turn it. I use a swivel head ratchet and its no sweat
