Re: Hemi tick finally cured

Well i did seafoam over 2 days. About half a bottle on Sunday and another half Monday. I still noticed the tick. I just took it to the shop and had them check to make sure there was no exhaust leak and there was not one...I just put full synthetic oil in the WK and I don't want to seafoam it with that brand new oil in it. I guess this time I will try to put the whole can of seafoam in the oil. Hopefully that will get rid of the annoying noise. If that doesn't fix it I don't know what else to do. Any one have to run more than one seafoam treatment through the oil to fix the tick? Can you leave seafoam in for longer than 250 miles?

You can do anything you want, but none of this is recommended by the people who make the engine... Seriously, seafoam? Sand will get rid of the noise too... It will be completely quiet.

Just put a "CRD" tag on the rear and turn up the radio. That would be far better for your engine.

Re: Hemi tick finally cured

87k now on my Hemi and no ticking sounds. I add 1/2 bottle of Seafoam to the oil 100 miles before every oil change, the other 1/2 in the gas tank. If you have not done this on your Hemi, you will not realize how badly those MDS lifters stick. Low end torque really comes alive once they are freed up.

LOL.... the same factory engineers who say not to clean the TB, as it is non-serviceable ? Funny, my 5 star Jeep dealer cleans the 5.7 TB as part of their 60k service package, since they realize it makes a world of difference in how the hemi runs.

I cleaned my tb and got stalling for a few days until it went away on its on. I guess the iac or tps was just a hair off actual. But now I have a catch can so no worries. My 09 doesn't have the tick. But i would never do more than 1/2 can in the crank case. I use marvel mystery oil with every oil change, that miggt have something to do with it.

Sums you up perfectly doesn't it

Re: Hemi tick finally cured

I actually am merely trying to balance the posts here with my wisdom, however unwise, for those who know little and come upon this thread.

"Contempt prior to investigation" is, in my opinion, the basis for the scientific method. One is to attempt to disprove a hypothesis for a reason.

Good luck all!

Use 1 oz. seafoam per quart of oil maximum, so 1/2 can is about right, also what I use. You also need to reset the ECU after cleaning the TB by disconnecting battery negative terminal for a while, or the idle will be off. Mine even threw an idle code when I started it, so I did the reset and code went away, then idled perfectly.
