How about an indication of ticks vs n ticks ever

had tick on my 335i BMW twin turbo, my mom's Volvo has the tick too. all dealers said it's the valves and normal?

I had cylinder head replaced with CEL on but no tick. That head was bad and I developed a tick with that head. Dealership replaced cylinder head again and no problems so far.

Mine ticks but dealer says its normal, but I have listened to pentastars that don't tick at all so they don't all do it.

Are you referring to tick when you turn jeep off?

Does the tick vary with the RPM?

Closing on 6k miles and my Pentastar does not tick and shows no current or average missfires on #2. Yet.

Really? Mine does these strange hard drive noises in the night. I've been in my garage when it suddenly started transmitting all our secret weapons info to the alien mother craft. At one point, it almost sounded like it was going to start up like when you hit the remote start button.

And I have 28K miles on my 2011 V6. No ticks. In fact, it runs smoother and even quieter now than when it was brand new.

Are you saying that my ticking might go away with milege? You have a 2011 so yours was probably built before this problem started. The dealer says my ticking is normal injector noise and I could maybe accept that if it was from both sides of the engine, but for some reason my only ticks on the left side.

I have a hemi so the only problem I have is with it sounding awesome. I took it to the dealer and they said it's normal. :lol:
