Can you post a sound or video file (or link to youtube)?
Hopefully this link works...
Sound quality isn't so great, may have been too close...you can hear it right when I hit the pedal

I had the same issue after warming up to running temp. I tried different oil and additives with no luck!

Then took it to my tech and he put 10w-40 "diesel oil" with the STP lifter additive and no sound now. But it's just a bandaid...

Im sure I will just replace my lifter when I have time.

So it seems to be just a lifter issue? That's not too bad right? Not to canny on the engine stuff haha. I tried 5w-30 and it hasn't helped.

Will trying 10w-40 have any ill effects until I can get the lifters looked at?

I haven't had any ill effects at all, I have gone 12k now with nothing different! Also not burning as much oil as I was either. My tech. said it won't do a thing to it.

Hard to say. When its cool, try wiggling the various heat shields. might as well try to rule them out.

Three things...

You may notice on all jeep/JK forums now that many JKs from 2007-2009 are starting to get this.

1. Heat shields (check the shielding along the transmission cross member area. They are cheap, tiny tackwelds. (should be covered in your power train 2007 warranty)

2. Exhaust manifold crack. Your video doesn't sou d that great but, it did sound like a manifold crack. (should be covered in your power train 2007 warranty)

3. Throwout Bearing. Your description of the sound and the RPMs it happenens fits with the 6 speed issues. Again it's been around six years, the factory oem TOB has been known to be ****y.

I'm convinced it's a rattle from something loose. Any easy way to access the passenger header heat shield?
