High Pitched Ticking Engine Noise

My 2012 laredo with the pentastar v6 has recently been making this high pitched ticking noise when in idle and at slow speeds. It also has a whistle sound on startup in the cold that goes away after about a minute. I have seen some posts about ticking noises coming from the pentastar but no clear answers. Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: High Pitched Ticking Engine Noise

are you aware of the head problems these early models had, not saying thats the issue but something to consider, but i believe they throw the ck engine light on with a misfire code

like this: (watch on youtube you will find more there on right side of page)

Re: High Pitched Ticking Engine Noise

I have looked into that. It sounds like that is what's happening except my check engine light did not illuminate like it said it would for that problem.
