ColdCase, all lifters are activated at the same time (all 4) and no codes. The solenoid issue was fixed before I bought the Jeep. MDS activates like clock work at low speed up to about 60km/h and...

Thanks ColdCase, much appreciated. No, only slight tick, no clatter. From what I read it seemed as if the tick could be lifter failure related, so thanks for clearing that up.

Just for info, I posted this issue on the WK2 forum too, since the 5.7VVT motor is mostly used in the WK2 Jeep. And of course other Chrysler vehicles.
Received very good comments there too.

Bumzo1, thanks for your post, much appreciated. First time I read about your experience with the 2009 hemi. I assume it is the VVT Eagle head motor.

Thanks for comments, appreciate. On my 2008 hemi without the VVT head (Eagle head) the MDS would activate very easily. This 2010 Eagle head rarely activates MDS and also at low rpm. I can see this...

I suggest do a good flush of the cooling system, then put new coolant and also the 190 thermostat and see if that gives you what you want. Make sure to get all the air out; this is tricky.
