Also, just an FYI. This is in my Factory Service Manual for my CJ7. It's on a problem tree for the valvetrain on a 258; which is identical to the 4.0's:

Still haven't figure this out. The clicking has went from every now and then to happening almost on every start up now. Still goes away after a couple of minutes. I'm not very mechanical so I'm probably going to have a mechanic look at it.

Any other ideas on what could be causing this? I'll point out to the mechanic to check the areas mentioned above. Any ideas on how expensive this could be if it is something listed above?... or anything else?

Mine was a cracked weld on one of the cats. I put a stainless clamp on it to test until I got my neighbour to weld it again.

Is there a Fram oil filter involved? If so, try swapping it with a good quality oil filter like Wix, AC-Delco Duraguard, Purolator PureOne, etc. Frams are notorious for leaking the top-end oil back down through the oil filter's check valve which allows a dry engine start.

Hey Jerry... been awhile! Nope, no fram oil filter. I have a Mobil 1 filter in there right now. Any problems with those?

Hey I just noticed it's you! So you're back in SD for the surf? No problems with the Mobil 1 filter.

Yeah, back for the surf! Just been taking it easy and trying to find some work. Things have been good... can't complain. If you ever need a extra hand with anything, let me know! Catch you later.
