Re: Tick in XJ 4.0 L. Help!

well, it sounds like either a lifter or rocker arm. is it stock? how many miles? I have one that gets loud when the oil filter gets dirty. the oil never gets real dirty, but if I change the filter 1/2 way trough an oil change interval, It gets quieter. If it has some miles, it wouldn't hurt to add some seafoam, it helps keep the lifters freed up.

Sounds like a stuck lifter smacking into a rod. Painful to watch...

I would also check the mechanical fan to make sure it's not hitting anything too.

Re: Tick in XJ 4.0 L. Help!

check the flexplate bolts first its a common problem and will sound like that

loose flexplate bolts jeep cherokee - YouTube


jeep cherokee tightening flexplate bolts - Bing

yea upon listening to it again i tend to agree it does sound like lifters listen up close and see if it seems to be in the top of the motor or underneath

google youre results
