I listened to the video of the LE that was making a CHIRPING noise. When I purchased my limited ram with the 5.7 a couple years ago, it made this same noise. I pulled out my mechanics stethoscope and narrowed it down to the water pump. After figuring out what was chirping, I decided to bring it up to my dealer when I took it in for its next oil change. Before the oil change came due, the chirp went away and has never been back. I want to say that the truck chirped for 3-4 weeks from new. It now has 40,000 miles, and I have not heard the chirp again for two years now. If my new TRX does the same, I will again attempt to narrow down the chirp. If it's the water pump again, I'm going to ride it out.

Reminds me of the 2003 Cobra I had. That car was awesome, but had the most annoying case of “piston slap” that Ford determined was “normal”. I ended up selling it because it annoyed the hell out of me.

I've had 4 hemi's, 5.7 and 6.4, definitely known as the Hemi tick. Not what you want to hear. Not all had it, and as I mentioned prior, when I put headers on my 5.7 I could hear it while driving under my floor board where the headers collected.

My TRX has a little of it as well.
I agree it is the same noise all the Hellcat cars and SUVs make every day on a cold start. 3 years later and nothing is broken and the vehicle performs like a champ. I am not defending their excuse by any means, it annoys me every day until it warms up.

My concern is... because they have concluded that there was “no issue” and the sound was normal, technically it wouldn’t count as a single day in the shop under lemon law.... because there was nothing to fix....
I have emails from them saying there was an issue.
they’re just trying to get rid of it so I can’t lemon them.
call my lawyer this afternoon
