Exclamation 08 Grand Cherokee HEMI Engine Tick with Acceleration

Hello,

I'm seeking some advice on what this issue could be. I have an 08 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the 4.7 HEMI engine. When car is idiling or coasting down the road there is no ticking noise heard from engine. When you lightly or heavily step on the gas the engine ticks and ticking increases as RPM gauge does. I'm not sure if this is normal for the engine or if something is wrong? Any advice will help.

For openers the 4.7 is not a hemi - it is an OHC engine... Maybe you mean a 5.7????
