R/T idle noise
Since I really have not ever had a chance to see another Nitro R/T I do not know if this noise is normal or not.
At idle I can hear slight chug chug type noise that does not speed up with revs. Sounds like a pully/ belt or something, I doubt its lifters as the noise remains constant even when tapping the gas pedal.
The noise still remains even after the belt and tensioner were replaced to the new style version. I didnt request this, the dealer just did it as a TSB.
Perhaps other R/T owners can advice me on what the R/T sounds like on idle?
