Question about Jeep Wrangler
I have an '02 jeep wrangler tick. Straight 6, 4.0 L engine. I've developed a loud tick (pretty sure it's a lifter). After an oil change it goes away for awhile. Oil pump pressure was a little low so for $600 I got a new oil pump. Tick went away. What a relief. Tick returned. Mechanic says to use Rislone additive with oil change to get rid of the lifter tick. It may take a couple oil changes but it'll work. (Had 2 engine flushes on back-to-back oil changes too). It worked only to return at 1000 miles, then800 miles, then 400 miles. It's been 10,000 miles of multiple 10w-30 high mile Pennzoil oil changes with 1 quart Rislone. Tick is back. I'm going broke trying to get at this tick. What's up?
I have a 94 YJ gave me the same issues and I did all you did and more.
Finely I was told that penzoil has a parfin base which lends it self to the cause. I don't know if it is true or not I'm just a shade tree mech. I switched over to full synthetic and WA-LA It took a couple of changes after a good cleaning but I've been TICK free for a over a year now. since I do my own change it helps hold the cost down. I was also told I needed lifters and a rebuild & all that jazz so I figured that if she was gona die I'd deal with that when it happens so far so good.

If this vehicle has a high millage then you have worn bearing if the oil pressure go's to low then this would be the problem, if not then you should have your lifters replaced but check oil pressure if the noise comes back when the oil pressure drops then you need to over haul your engine. if this information has been useful please let use know good luck
