2019 ram 2500 6.4 Hemi no oil pressure on start up. Clanging noise. Shut off immediately and towed to dealer. No codes thrown . Oil changed with recommended Penzoil every 5K miles. What is the issues failed oil pump, lifters MDS system? Will warranty cover? Only 45K on engine not giving me much confidence in the Hemi engine.

Don't know what kind of warranty your engine has (5 years? 7? 10?). Dealer will probably try to screw you and say you mistreated the engine - esp. if its got to be rebuilt/replaced. Based on what you stated, your oil pump is shattered. Sometimes, faulty metals get into the making of components - so it's possible that is the culprit. Hemi engines are typically pretty good engines as long as you're not trying to be a speed demon, and as long as you take care of them. If it's JUST the oil pump, then you might be lucky and able to get away without having to replace the engine, but IF pieces of it got into the main part of the engine, or if a piston failed, the entire engine is going to have to be rebuilt or replaced. If your warranty is good (7 years/70,000 or 10 years/100,000) you might be ok - but again, dealer may try to screw you.

They said it's still under warranty but will probably try to screw me . From what I read looks like a new engine after only 45K. Are all new trucks junk?

I don't think so - but take it under this advisement: Most car manufacturers don't actually want to sell junk because it means they have to spend more to fix warranty issues, post recalls, and risk lemon laws. They DO want to make it as cheaply as they can get away with (meaning using the cheapest source of metals that are graded in certain grades, plastics as thin as possible, etc.) because it means more $$$ in their pocket, but they don't want to have to FIX things either, because it means less $$$ in their pocket - it almost always costs more to fix an issue, than it does to make it right the first time, especially if they have to do a recall. That being said, more than 65-70% of parts used in the American supply/manufacturing system are sourced from China. Now, that being said, most car manufacturers rely on their service department network to report major issues, but I also believe service departments do get "dinged" for too many negative reports that result in the company having to pay to fix the issue (meaning - if they report too many issues they're noticing, they get a corporate black mark). So - it's in the service department's best interest to try to keep you on the hook for as much as possible. I also believe that warranty repairs also don't get charged at the full rate - meaning - the service department only gets a fraction of what the repair would normally be charged to a paying customer. It's the system that allows car manufacturers and service departments to get away with shoddy service. That doesn't mean that ALL service departments are this way - but many, if not most, are. There are several levels/layers as well. Each service department reports to a district manager (with several under the district), and the district managers report to a regional manager, who reports to the company service manager. If you're not getting help at one layer, ask for the next one up. Don't expect to much of a reply though unless you get an attorney involved. Also, keep in mind you can report your issue to the lemon laws.

Here's two good sites to read through carefully:

This doesn't make me feel good. I have a 2019 6.4 hemi that just turned 40k. I guess I will be keeping my fingers crossed.
Sorry - It's better to know the hard truth vs. having smoke being blown (no pun intended) you know where - It's better to deal with this sort of situation with an attitude that you're going to have major issues and/or problems with the dealer, and then be pleasantly surprised if things do work out (and I hope they do work out!) Good luck!

Dealer called this morning said tech checked truck and everything was normal. No noise, oil pressure cold was 70 psi and 49 after warm up. Oil was clean, no codes no alerts . Weird . Hope it stays together .

By any chance had you started the engine prior to your issue and it only ran for say a minute or 2 then you shut it off,and didn't restart it for say an hour or more after the prior short run time.
The hemi will clatter if you fire it up,move it a couple feet,then shut it off,and wait for a bit,on the next start it'll rattle and have lifter noises etc..
If that's what you did,it's nothing to worry about,one way around it,is to take the rpm up to about 1500/1800 rpm for a few seconds before you shut it off after you've moved it a few feet,or it's only ran for a minute or 2.
