3rd dealer for ticking

Well I went to the 3rd dealer today for the pentastar tick. I got the same answer it fuel injectors. I went outside with one of the service managers and we listened to it and finally I asked him to bring another one up to compare. He finally admitted that mine was louder and the ticking was only on the left side but still maintained that it was normal. He said the one we were comparing to only had 3K miles and mine had 10. As with the other dealers he had not heard of any head problems and said the only issue they had seen is cam phazers on early ones which is what the other dealers said as well. So for now I continue to have the ticking head that keeps getting louder and I suppose at some point will throw a CEL. It runs good otherwise.

Re: 3rd dealer for ticking

I never had a loud tick and it threw a code and they replaced the head. But again...your opinion on LOUD may be different from mine.

Re: 3rd dealer for ticking

The tick is not real loud but its noticable and it is only on the left side. Thats why when they say injectors I was asking why only the left side. I guess time will tell what it does. For now it runs smooth and strong.

Re: 3rd dealer for ticking

Is test 06 showing misfires in any cyl ? (Need an OBD-II scanner). Is a warning sign for the head issue.
