SOURCE: I have been told the ticking noise my engine is

these is an old fix, and yes it is ok to do this, but it is better to add a can of Berrymans Chemtool run about 25 miles and drain oil.

SOURCE: ticking noise from engine

if you've got a few $$ to risk ,try some synthetic oil with new filter ...it often work good for these kind of noise as long as it is not a loud knoking nois ...if it is only a fast clic clic nois it will probably work!

SOURCE: A loud ticking noise?

No I would not chase to the pistons, these vehicle were very comon in creating HLA noise hydraulic lash adjusting valves, meaning the valves pump up with oil as the oil gets thinner they dont pump up as fast and create a very loud ticking noise, I would not express a great concern over simplicity, dodge was famous for this, they really were.

SOURCE: Does 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 have hydraulic

I would not believe any thing some parts store loser told you. Theres not a V8 built that doesnt have hydraulic lifters, unless its some fancy racin engine. It has hydraulic lifters, but unless you dont change your oil every 5k miles and/or use some cheap oil, there should be no problems. You should have a real mechanic look at it, and verify that you have good oil pressure. If it does, I would change the oil and use some MOBIL 1 and drive it, the oil will clean the lifters somewhat. If the eng has low oil pressure, that will need to be addressed.

Valve tap cause


Most engines now use hydraulic lifters and they can leak a little, this causes space between then lifter and the push rod. This results in a tapping noise that goes away when they get warm or fill back up.

Ticking in engine


ticking noise from an engine is more than likely the rockers under the valve cover. after a long period of time, the lifters and the push rods wear and cause fatigue in the metal and also the lifters can also start sticking from ling usage and dry oil getting stuck inside them

What would cause a Ticking noise in a jeep grand cherokee


Most time a ticking noise is caused by a valve lifter malfunction or a worn pivot on a rocker arm. if the noise appears to be coming from the valve cover (inside) that's usually where the problem is. Depending upon which engine you have the repair procedure will vary. (consult a haynes or chilton manual)
Before taking anything apart though many times a lifter noise will respond to a good engine additive like marvel oil or lucas engine conditioner. Neither one will harm the engine and it may quiet it down for you!

1996 4.0 grand cherokee ticking noise do valves need adjusting? not using any oil, oil pressure good


This vehicle has hedraulic valves and should not need periodic adjustment. I think that your model, works like Ford, just tighten at the bottom and should be good to go....so, what happens if they tick? there are oversized push rods available.... But typically something got worn causing the issue.

Locate one offending valve, and investigate everything between the valve tip and the camshaft. Collapsed lifters cause this issue. Collapsed means the hardened surface of the lifter, that touches the camshaft. Not always so easy to extract and look.

WHEN ENGINE IS RUNNING IT TICKS LOUDLY AND WHEN U ACCELERATE IT TICKS FASTER.


A worn valve lifter or a loose rocker arm is causing that noise.To find out which one it is, the valve covers have to come off and check each one. If the rocker arms are snug, then it's a lifter, in which case the whole top part of the engine has to come off to get at the lifters.

It make a ticking noise like an exhaust leak. the gasket is good any other suggestions


THERE'S AN EGR VALVE IN THE EXHAUST, BUT THAT WOULDN'T TICK. TRY ADDING ONE OF THOSE LIFTER QUIET CHEMICALS U CAN AT THE AUTO STORE AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. IF THAT HELPS, THEN U KNOW IT'S THE LIFTERS. U CAN STILL DRIVE WITH THE TICKING LIFTERS FOR AWHILE, BUT SOONER OR LATER THEY NEED TO BE CHANGED. ALSO, INFREQUENT OIL CHANGES CAN CAUSE A TICKING LIFTER.
