If its a constintly ticking noise while driving sometimes it can go and fade away, this is due to your tappets or also lifters are worn out or not getting oil to them due to your oil pick up, and this will also give you the engine light and the engine light wil stay on all the time till the problem is fixed

Dodge neon 2.0 L sohc how to remove lifters from rocker arms

Ok here is the deal, the lifters are poorly designed and prone to noise or "tick", the way to silence this is not just new lifters but new rocker arm assemblies which include new lifters. Use the best parts not the cheapest ones, factory new one are improved from previous designs. If you still want to just replace the lifters you must take the rockers to a machine shop and have the lifters pressed out and replaced by them. Another suggestion is if you live in a warm climate use 10W-30W synthetic oil.

Light ticking noise in engine in 2009 dodge journey RT V6.

Ours was doing the same thing until I switched over to full synthetic oil. It does still tick on startup if it is colder than -10 degrees Celsius and it is not plugged in. If you figure anything out please let me know.

the next mechanic needs to be thorough. if there is a hard knock, its a hard mechanical issue! were the piston and rod assemblies checked? that requires removal of the head. chances are you could have a busted piston.

no. 3 plug, wire or coil pack. Remove the plug wire one inch from the plug using a properly insulated plug wire tool with the engine running, if you hear a tick, tick sound then it's the plug if you don't hear a tick tick sound it means it's the wire or the coil.

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.

It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive
