Ah....the infamous HEMI tick I presume. Mobil-1 , but was it 5W-20? WalMart also sells Mobil-1 in 5W-30 viscosity.

Re: Ticking noise

Mine seems to come & go. Worse on cold start. Doesn't always show up though.

Proabably depends more on the time of day and direction the car is pointing.

Re: Ticking noise

Its the lifters definitely. It should be more more noticeable on a cold start though. It is caused by the thick viscosity of the oil in a cold engine and quiets down after it is heated up and flows better.

Re: Ticking noise

try using a product like z max that penetrates the metal and provides lubrication even at Cold Starts.

I changed the oil & filter yesterday (5W-20 full synthetic). Listened specifically after startup, while I was checking for leaks at drain plug & oil filter. Nothing.

Later, went to store, and I heard the "ticking" from the open driver's window, while backing out of the garage.

Re: Ticking noise

Mines been pretty loud at times too, Ive often thought somethings wrong, but all the Jeep guys say its just the Hemi! So i take their word for it, lol. At one point i heard there was a fix/ mod for this which helped... i dont remember tho.
