HEMI tick poll

I am looking at buying WK2 and still can't decide between V6 and HEMI.

Posting in this forum because expect to have more long-term HEMI owners here.

Gas mileage is not a problem for me (don't drive much). Price difference is not that much.

HEMI tick is the only thing that concerns me. I test-drove V6 and HEMI on WK2 and didn't really notice it but drive was not really long.

Do "they all do this"?

Re: HEMI tick poll

Mine is extremely noticeable, but I have a CAI. I don't think it's much of an issue with the new hemi (2009 and up)

I understand there was HEMI redesign in 2009? Where can I get some information about what has changed?

Has your tick been the same from day 1 since you purchased it new or it got worse over time?

The "HEMI tick" is greatly diminished since I started using full synthetic 5W-20 at 36K miles. Most times it is non-existent now (51K miles).

Re: HEMI tick poll

Yeah, it's very oil dependant, mine ticks without genuine oil. Due to the genuine oil's ridiculous cost here, I'm now using Mobil 1 5W/30 and find it's just noticable (at times, sometimes not at all), but not overly annoying.

I bought the vehicle with 19,000km's on it, at that time I didn't notice it nor did I know that the Hemi tick exsisted. From about 35,000 and up I noticed a VERY signifigant increase, but I am extremely hard on my vehicle. As for the oil, I noticed it is slightly more harsh when using castrol instead of Mobile1, (No I don't work for Mobile1)

Re: HEMI tick poll

I don't notice mine except on first start up. Once the engine warms up, it seems to go away, or is greatly diminished.

Re: HEMI tick poll

Mine does it, but I only hear it if I'm outside the vehicle and it's idling. Like if I'm looking under the hood while it's running you can hear it. I was told it was the fuel injectors. I've also been told it's the CAM and lifters. It's not a reliability concern though, not that I'm aware of anyways.

Re: HEMI tick poll

Just turn the stereo up a couple notches and the tick will go away!
