Can anyone else verify the thought about the oil level?

I will say this: Welcome to the VVT family. I've got a 5.7 VVT in my JK and I've got the same tick. I thought it was an exhaust leak for a while. It comes and goes. Take a look here and I think this is what you're hearing:
http://www.google.com/search?client=...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

I agree sometimes it's the injectors firing. I also think sometimes it's a lifter or 2. I've had my scope out listening and to me it sounds like a lifter based on it's location of the drivers rear corner of the motor. The Challenger guys say it's injector cycle related.

Cheers,
John

2012 Ticking issue

2012 Sahara 2dr. Build date 10/11 Dropping off at dealer tomorrow night. They want to hear it cold etc. Sounds just like the youtube videos already posted. Driver side is definitely louder! Just hit 4K miles and it always rapped on startup but now the ticking is getting louder. No codes at all. I really thought my oil was low but it wasn't.

Took mine in the shop on Tuesday after it threw the P0304 over the weekend. They agreed to replace the head. I was supposed to get it back yesterday, but they didn't finish until this morning.

To say that it sounds better is an understatement. I'll let you hear it for yourself.

I recorded both videos with the same iphone, the same way.

Here is before:

Here is after, and yes it is running the whole time:


So if you have a 2012 and it doesn't sound like # 2, I'd take it to the dealer...

The only downside to it is that the wash crew apparently stole my Ipod touch from my locked center console. I figured that locking it would be enough but didn't think that the thief would be someone with the key...the dealership (Mckinney Jeep Dodge City in Mckinney, tx) offered no sort of compensation even though they acknowledged that it was playing when they took it for a test drive but disappeared when the wash crew brought it back.

Small claims court time for you and the dealer.
