Ticking when started

When I first start my Jeep after a long sit i.e. over night or a day at work. I have a loud ticking coming from the engine lasts up to 30 minutes at times, sometimes the ticking is louder and the others. I had taken in it to the dealership where I got it cause I have a warranty they tell me it's normal they said it's the ?purge sensor? running a test.

Those purge sensors are mounted on rubber.
Maybe the rubber is worn out.

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

Sounds like the valve lifters are taking longer than normal to pump up with pressure. Getting the motor cleaned out and de-sludged would help. also use good quality oil after the cleaning.

Loud ticking noise in 2004 Buick century


The ticking is probably a damaged lifter, hard to say exactly without hearing it. If you hired a qualified automotive shop to do your oil change and they didn't put enough oil in your vehicle they would have some liability. Your paper work should state the amount of oil put in the engine. Cross reference that with your manual

Ticking/Tapping when car starts but goes away???


I had what sounds like the exact same problem. It was an exhaust leak from the left (driver's) side exhaust manifold. This engine has a history of the manifold bolts breaking and causing the exhaust leak. The engine is also used on some Dodge vehicles. It sounds like a tick and I almost mistook it for a bad lifter. I took it to the local Jeep dealer who confirmed the exhaust leak. I replaced the left manifold completely and replaced bolts/gaskets on both sides (left/right) and it fixed the problem. Be careful, as the dealer tried to gouge me on the price. You are looking in the ball park of $600 parts/labor. I got parts for $120 and it took the better part of a work day to do the job.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a loud ticking noise, won't start.


Your problem is likely a bad battery and/or corrosion on the battery terminals. Remove the cables from the battery terminals and clean them with a wire brush or other tool. NOTE: always remove the negative cable first and reconnect it last. Reconnect the cables and then try to start/jump the vehicle again. If that doesn't clear the problem, take the battery to your local auto parts store or supplier and have them check it. You will probably need a new one.
