I recall reading a post here with a member having an April build date and having the problem.

I am going to using the Iphone to get a record of how mine sounds this weekend. Just in case. 2012 Sarhara Unlimited build date 1/2012, final assembly Toledo. Purchased 5/1/2012 and just passed the 600 mile mark. Fit & finish is flawless as well as the driving experience. No problems to date.

I am posting so I can keep up with this thread. Thanks.

To me that post is a much bigger failure than the "engine tick" issue...
Man I feel for that guy....I wouldn't want that jeep back either.

I always have my cars' oil change at my mechanic, I'm wondering if I have to do oil change at the dealer to avoid trouble if I might get the ticking sooner or later.
I do all my own oil, fluids, filters. I had my head replaced at 15K miles and the dealer only asked if I had changed the oil on time. They didn't press for any receipts. It was pretty painless.

That being said, I do keep all my receipts and suggest others do the same. They'll probably be bigger sticklers if I have another tick at say 90K miles that I want covered under warranty.

Search this thread or youtube and you will find videos on the ticking. It is very noticeable. It is on the driver's side. The passenger side will be much quieter.

Not to hijack this thread, but what's on the passeneger side? Mine is making this high pitch chirping/rattling sound during acceleration, usually after a long 50+ minute drive. Yesterday was the second time I drove to the service about it, there it failed again making that noise. By the time I arrived home it was back, but service closed. Asked wifey to step on gas with the hood open. It's sort of coming from behind the alternator on the passenger side of the engine.

He said to me: "there is an issue, and it will get worse; when it misfires, you will feel/notice it," and in my head I'm thinking "did he really just say that?" Then he told me if I wanted to bring it by "every now and then" so they could check to see if a code has been thrown, I'm more than welcome to. But if they were to go any further (dismantle anything to find the exact offending cylinder head/issue), it would be on my dime, not Chrysler's.

The fact that they sent me on my way knowing I have an issue, and that it will get worse, just doesn't sit well with me. Not the dealership's fault, they have instructions/rules they have to go by. But I do have an issue with Chrysler that this is their MO.

That sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that started when I first heard the tick a couple months ago just got worse.

An offer to possibly contact the dealership to arrange for a rental while I left my Jeep with them to drive around and see if they can get it to throw a code was mentioned, but I don't think I want to go that route. Who knows how long that would take? And, I'd like to continue knowing exactly where all of my miles came from.

Bleh. I love my Jeep and I just want her fixed. I can't seem to get past the fact that it's only 6 months old/has 3800 miles, has an engine problem, they acknowledge it has a problem, they say the problem will get worse, but they won't fix it.

Sorry for the whine.

My friend got code scanner from Amazon for about $20, he pulled some codes from his Sienna while my Miata was clean
If you want to check any code once a while, you might get try getting a scanner (make sure it works with JK though)

As long as you have their recommendation in writing, drive it and don't worry about it. I know that is hard to do. Others who have had this issue have not had any performance issues and they have not been left on the side of the road. Some have been told to keep driving them until the new head arrives. Once replaced they say they run great.

We all have 5yr/100,000 mile warranty plus if something more is an issue and you feel unsafe, call Chrysler road side assistance and have it towed on their dime.

The video works on my phone, please give it another shot. Update: Finally the chirping happened at the service too. Only the manager lady was there closing the shop, so no diagnosis yet. I will have to drop it off NEXT Wednesday and they are giving me a rental. Sidenote: today is Wednesday. The sound appears to come from the passenger side valvetrain. I was riding without the radio for the past two days listening to the engine. Came to realize, the steering wheel squeaks. I'm afraid to spray in some Teflon lube, who knows if there is a steering position sensor there, or airbag connection or wiring to the steering wheel buttons that would get messed up. One more thing for the shop to check out.

Update on mine... 4th time in the shop, total of 23 days in the shop. I've gone through my case manager an it's been assigned to impartial services (which my rep has been very helpful so far). They are on day 9 or so on this 4th visit and are waiting on engine gaskets that are out of stock. Once they are in they will be replacing the left cylinder head. 3rd visit (which was 10 days), they replaced lifters and camshafts which did nothing to stop the tick. The lady at impartial services offered to reimbursement a month payment so far, which she said I should have within 2 weeks. I have not had any warnings or codes thrown by my jeep as far as I know, but the tick is loud as hell from the left side of the engine. I should have my jeep back in a week. My suggestion to people bringing their jeep into the dealership the first time with the tick, hit them hard with all the information you can and do not let them tell you it's nothing. Im obviously not saying to be rude but you really have to press them on engine sound issues because they love to use the wranglers lack of insulation/rugged construction as a scape goat for misc sounds you may be hearing. But the engine should not tick at all. My room mate and another friend have jeeps, same mileage, quiet and smooth sounding.

You're better off just living with the tick. I have a slight tick that has spontaneously quieted down lately on my 2012 sport. It was louder after the first oil change and has since got quieter and quieter. I'm now at 5400 miles and it's barely noticeable. I would prefer to drive with a tick than have the idiots at your Chrysler dealership work on my jeep. Tick away and keep on working OR take it in, press the idiots to admit it's broke and be without a jeep for a month while they experiment on it and not know what they are fixing? Screw that! Drive it and enjoy it. This tick hype is getting annoying lately. Just saying to drive it and if the engine fails take it in. If it works fine but ticks, oh well, live with it.

Yes, because when an engine is ticking loudly it's very smart to drive it into the ground. Just to let you know, the 5 year 100k warranty doesn't cover all parts in the engine (according to the service manager when I asked that exact question). So be my guest, blow the sh*t out of your engine and you can pay the thousands of dollars out of pocket at 40k miles and Chrysler will fight you every step of the way since it's after the standard warranty. It amazes me that people are willing to spend $30k on a vehicle and be happy with what is likely a major engine defect. I for one am noticing irregular acceleration and loss of power, but like I said before I can hear mine ticking off the sides of buildings 20 feet away when driving down the street. They either fix it or buy it back in my view. But perhaps I'm just irrational.

Nope they should not be that loud and having a performance issue. You are doing the right thing. Others with the LOUD ticking issue on the left side vs right have had to wait for a check engine light before the dealer will do anything.

I know I will be Pi$$ed Off with having to bring it in multiple times before the defect is resolved.

Imagine if you ignore it, including check engine lights and the engine is damaged down the road at 50 or 60K miles and the dealer says they won't fix it under warranty because you didn't bring it in a timely manner after the check engine light came on.

On a positive note, those who have had the head replaced say they run great and I have not heard of a second failure. Also at least this issue hasn't straded anyone or caused significant engine damage.

Good luck and keep us informed.

That's good advise. No point in spending all that money, having the tick, and knowing there is a problem related to the tick. Bring it in, at least you'll have a record of complaining of the tick. Then if it rears its ugly head later on with a CEL you'll already be in their system.

The last time I picked it up from the service the the AC was turned on, the technician may have had the same idea. Hopefully next week they can replicate the chirping noise.

More related to this thread is that now I can hear the ticking with windows up. Not really loud but noticeable while waiting with radio off. Otherwise the tire noise suppresses it I make sure they put the ticking on record even if nothing happens about it. We bought extended warranty on a Chryslar minivan before, never covered a thing.

Update

Well 7 days later I got my jeep back. originaly I was told that it was going to be at least 10 days. At day 4 and 5 the dealership did not know when the part would arrive. Worst yet was jeep and their customer service until day 7. For 6 days it was impossible to reach my case manager about getting my rental car paid for. But by some jeep god miracle on day 7 the case manager calls me says my jeep is ready to be picked up and that If I paid for the rental I would get a check for the full amount from jeep in 7 days from the date he recived the faxed bill. Immediatly after hanging up with him the service department called to let me know my jeep was ready. They had actualy called twice before (both times my phone did not ring and did not display the missed call or voicemail icon). I must be lucky to go from I dont have any idea what is going on to everything is taken care of in the same time it takes a 2012 to get from 0 -60


forgot to say it feels a million times better then it did when i dropped it off. No more ticking at all engine is quiter then before idel is not rough at all and there is a differnce in power and sound. Its like they just gave me a brand new engine. Its just like the way it was when I picked it up at the dealer with 10 miles. If any of you live near the cherry hill new jersey area and need jeep work done I would DEFINATLY recomend Cherry Hill Dodge Chrysler Jeep which is part of the Cherry Hill Triplex!!!!! Treated me better then any place ive ever been fast efficent and amazing employees!!

I'm glad you got your Jeep back!
I know it was looking uncertain as to when you'd be getting it back, so sooner is better.

Let me know when you want to hit the woods again.

I'm having trouble understanding why these engines are ticking? Is this a valve issue or possibly the piston rings? Has their been a fix to this? I would be so rattled if my new jeep ticks because I would get money back get an 11 and use the cash for mods because that in my opinion is just outrageous it makes me sick when I hear of you guys buying brand new jeeps with your hard earned green and this stuff happens when it dam well shouldn't.

Most people on here just don't like the sound these engines make and put up a huge stink with service departments when there is truly no issues with the engine, no check engine light, no loss in power, no problem that they can tell of. As I said earlier just drive it and if the check engine light comes on worry about it then. Driving me nuts all this ticking crap.

There has been zero cases of identified root cause yet. Everyone who pushes the issue with a dealer and sometimes Chrysler customer service has yet to say what the real issue was. If there was really a problem related to this tick then it would have been said what it is.

Personal opinion is that all of the check engine lights that have gone off so far causing heads to be replaced have nothing to do with the general tick that people are hearing. Separate issues...

I would love for someone to prove me wrong with evidence of root cause to the tick. No one can so it's not an issue and everyone should just relax over it.

What kind of proof do you want?
I had a verbal conversation with the service manager, the issue is a casting flaw during a production phase of heads. If you want that in print I can't provide it and I'd say anyone else would be hard pressed to produce it that way either. Chrysler is jus replacing the heads.

If you are tired of hearing about it there is a simple solution for you. If this was a small issue you wouldn't be hearing so much about it. If you don't have this issue or don't own a 2012, what keeps you coming to this thread?

Snizdog do you work for Chrysler or something? Trying to put out some misinformation? I had a Chrysler engineer from the AZ proving grounds and then a Chrysler service engineer (both of which are not dealership mechanics), but supposedly highly trained engineers very familiar with the engine. They have replaced lifters, camshafts, and now the left head and gaskets. What more proof do you want? I think your delusional because your too lazy to bring your jeep in and deal with the issue (which I really think is the case). But that's fine, if your engine does tick loudly from the left side, then your going to be in quite a fight down the road when your engine is totally fubar'd. If yours doesn't tick then nothing to worry about, you were a lucky one.
