My 6-speed manual trans. Dakota makes a chattering-
noise when the motor is lugging. The dealer confirmed
the noise is there but does not know what is causing it.
A similar truck on the dealer's lot has the same noise,
only louder, and therefore they conclude the noise is
normal. A Chrysler rep. told the dealer they are not
aware of a problem. Everyone who rides in my truck
asks me what is wrong with the motor.
I would like to hear from other 3.7 V6 owners who have
(or do not have) noise like this. You can reach me off-list
at jackf at earthlink dot com, if you wish. Thanks for
