    I am not sure this is the right forum.

    I have 878 miles on the Hellcat, and I did the proper breakin, with the 500 mile oil change, ect.

    I cranked it up tonight, and heard a slight ticking noise. It seems to be coming from the pass side valve cover area.

    Anyone had any issues here? It's very audible, and I am not sure if a spring in there is broken, ect.

    The dealership is about 45 min away. Do I chance driving there? I have no SES lights, and all guages are where they should be. But the ticking is very audible.

    Anyone else seen or heard of this?

    THANKS in advance ;)

    I've posted about this too in the past and also talked with my SRT guy about it. All the responses I've gotten are "All Hemi's tick." Mine seems to come from the lower part of the drivers side, not the valve cover area.

    I wonder if it could be some sort of exhaust leak? I want to hear more info from people on this. I guess if it blew up on the way there, it would still be under warranty :)

    This just started, so I just wonder.....it's an audible tick. I will try to get it on recording, and try to find a way to attach it.

    Didn't someone about 3 months ago get a HC that was delivered with a ticking noise? I think the thought was it had to do with the SC belt alignment?:oops:

    Yes, it probably is the dreaded hemi tick, might require penicillin, I would take it in

    Yes, I recall someone posting regarding a sound, I thought it was a broken rocker arm or something on the top end.

    I thought that it was a characteristic of a hemi engine to have a ticking sound from what ive read but Ive also read that the Hellcat engine is 90% new and doesnt have hemispherical heads so to me its hard to call it a Hemi engine. I havent heard a Hellcat engine in person yet so I dont know exactly what they should sound like but id be surprised to find out it makes a ticking sound.

    That "Hemi Tick" is light clatter, doesn't sound like what this guys talking about. His tick, might turn into "rod knock" that would suck

    I have a video to post. It sounds like it could be a rocker arm to me. Never heard it before.
