Tiking noise ( helpp)

1090 9
Hello i have noticed some tiking sound in my engine when opening the hood, some people say it’s normal and some of them say it’s from the lifters, i took my car to the delearship and they said it’s normal. It’s obviously hearable the lifters sound, i ask them to open the engine and check and they said it’s a lot of work and we don’t need to do it because your engine sound is normal, even the technical says it’s the supercharger sound. I will put two video links for you guys to listen to the sound and see if it’s normal or not. Youtube video 1 Youtube video 2

Sounds normal; just needs oil to circulate/warm-up.

Agree with rayzazoo. Sounds normal to me. With the engine running and the hood open you are going to hear every noise the engine emits.

All I can offer is my experience over the years with various car engines is an engine tends to get noisier as the oil accumulates miles. An oil change can have the engine noise output down by a noticeable amount.

If the oil is getting close to its change by miles when you do take the vehicle in for an oil/filter service note the noise before and after the oil change and in both cases with the oil up to temperature.

They supposedly fixed it in 2018 or 19

Different lifter

For those of us with the older set up it’s just a reason to build a motor

6.2 motors used a better different lifter than 6.4 but some still had issues

Keep the oil clean n don’t let it idle for long periods
