Re: Another ticking noise

Might be the start of the Faulty Head problem you may have seen on this site with the 3.6 engine.

Re: Another ticking noise

Mine has had the ticking since about 3K miles it now has 12K on it. The noise seems about the same it doesn't seem to be getting louder at this time. I have been to 3 dealers with it and they all say injector noise so that seems to be the offical word until I get a cel. It runs good otherwise it just drives me nuts when I pull up to a drive thru or something. The last dealer I went to I had them pull another 3.6 up to it to compare and that one had a little tick but not as loud as mine. He said well that one has 3K miles and yours has 10. I kept asking if its the injectors why are the ones on the right side not as loud and all he could say is he hears ticking on both sides when it was clearly louder on the left side. So I will just drive it until I get a cel I guess.

Re: Another ticking noise

Mine has had a slight ticking noise for 2 years and 41k miles and no CEL. Most noticeable in drive-thrus when it has a wall to bounce off of. Just standing next to it when running it isn't that bad. Runs good, mileage has stayed the same so I don't worry about it and figure it's just the injectors. If it was something bad it would have hit by now. Enjoy your Jeep, if it turns out to have the defective heads just let warranty take care of it.
