Hemi tick...
 
I noticed I have the wonderful Hemi tick and my question is, is it really bad to have? I have an extended warranty on my wk so I can take it to the dealer...should I?

Mine diminished when I switched from dino oil to full synthetic (5W-20, of course) at 36K miles.

Shortly thereafter (at 42K miles), changed the EGR valve and the "HEMI tick" is all-but-gone.

Could be coincidence or cause-&-effect. Either way, it's quieter now.
