2002 dodge durango RT 5.9L tapping noise from backside of motor. You can hear it in the bottom of the oil pan and also in the distributor when using a stethoscope. Oil pressure is low at an idle. Could it be oil pump going out or distributor shaft?

Do you
have the same problem?

I would bet on a cracked flywheel. It is a plate on the back of the motor joininh the engine to the transmission.

Just replaced transmission a couple thousand miles ago. Flywheel was good then. Will try to check it out.
