I know this is a WK forum but I got it on my WK2. I actually noticed it when I test drove mine. I am assuming it has to do with the valves and cold oil since it seems to go away at normal operating temperatures. I posted 'cause I was curious if this was the same tick and had spanned the model years.

Its the lifters. You could swap them for 6.1 lifters...or just listen to the tick

+1. Particularly its the MDS lifters. These lifters bleed down in quite literally no time at all. Especially with the thin oil we have to use for them.

Exactly and I know here in Cali w have crappy gas so that doesn't add any help in the matter. I just think of it as my motor kinda purring! haha

New EGR, PCV, TB cleaning and sea foam treatment have all helped me keep my "tick" to a bare minimum.

After installing new plugs, cleaning TB, installing catch can, PCV, etc.. the tick was still just as loud as ever. I installed a new EGR a few weeks ago, and the hemi tick is now finally gone. I did not go with an OEM unit, as the price from the dealer is 3 X what everyone else charges. The new EGR also made the idle smoother, and tip in throttle response is also improved. THere was also no CEL code for the EGR.

Not sure that's the same tick then. Listen to the motor when you first start it in the morning. you'll here those pesky lifters.

I have the Hemi tick also when first started. 2005 Limited. Question? What specific brand of EGR did you purchase? Info for the future. Thanks in advance.
