Re: Hemi Tick

I know this is a WK forum but I got it on my WK2. I actually noticed it when I test drove mine. I am assuming it has to do with the valves and cold oil since it seems to go away at normal operating temperatures. I posted 'cause I was curious if this was the same tick and had spanned the model years.

Re: Hemi Tick

Its the lifters. You could swap them for 6.1 lifters...or just listen to the tick

+1. Particularly its the MDS lifters. These lifters bleed down in quite literally no time at all. Especially with the thin oil we have to use for them.

Re: Hemi Tick

Exactly and I know here in Cali w have crappy gas so that doesn't add any help in the matter. I just think of it as my motor kinda purring! haha

New EGR, PCV, TB cleaning and sea foam treatment have all helped me keep my "tick" to a bare minimum.

Re: Hemi Tick

After installing new plugs, cleaning TB, installing catch can, PCV, etc.. the tick was still just as loud as ever. I installed a new EGR a few weeks ago, and the hemi tick is now finally gone. I did not go with an OEM unit, as the price from the dealer is 3 X what everyone else charges. The new EGR also made the idle smoother, and tip in throttle response is also improved. THere was also no CEL code for the EGR.

Re: Hemi Tick

Not sure that's the same tick then. Listen to the motor when you first start it in the morning. you'll here those pesky lifters.

I have the Hemi tick also when first started. 2005 Limited. Question? What specific brand of EGR did you purchase? Info for the future. Thanks in advance.
