Yeah they won't cover it, but they will sell my a extended warranty after they inspect the vehicle. Of course they inspect it they will find the same noise that I did and won't cover it cause it is an existing problem,lol

I can do the work myself, but not sure exactly what the problem is. Could be just a lifter tapping, valve tapping, all the way to a rod knocking. I much rather it be the lifter than the rod! It sounds like the #4 cyclinder, I pulled the spark plug and saw sludge built up on the top of the piston, which isn't a good sign

Chiorny I had that ticking noise then they replaced Catalytic converter with new one and that wasn’t the problem then I started having misfire then they noticed that there is a missing oil  after that tried to fix that engine 2 times 

Chiorny Just go to Jeep dealership and tell him to inspect amount of oil and sparkplugs if one of them is dirty then your engine is burning oil that mean you have same problem like me one cylinder is not working at all

Make sure you are aggressive insisting that they inspect engine properly !!!

Have you been checking your oil? Notice any of it burning?

Could be a lifter tick.

Chiorny It was covered cause my Jeep broke on 34000km you have that insurance to i think you are covered up to 100 000km but still when I saw that they are fixing engine itselfe 2 times eafter 34000km that told me about quality.

Chiorny I sold my Jeep od Dec 24 2011.
They found out in service that my Jeep was losing oil and they inspect spark plugs and found out that one is different then other. They put new oil and told me to come back in 30 days after that same thing its losing oil more than usual. They inspect engine and found out that cylinder 1 didn’t work properly. They fix that problem taking engine in parts after that everything was ok for another 2 mounts then same problem again. They fix cylinder 1 after that I trade my Jeep for Honda.

JKski Hello all, i am going to bump this thread because I have the same sorta problem.

I have a 2008 Wrangler Unlimited. I only have 41000 miles on it. There are no codes coming up, changed the oil and filter and seafoamed it. It doesn't make the ticking noise when you first start it and it is cold. After about 5 minutes whenit warms up, the ticking noise shows up..the ticking noise goes with the engine RPM's but only at idle. If I rev up the engine in park the noise goes away around 2000 rpms. Has anyone else had this problem, if so was the cause and fix.

Arpd3 Ok, what has the dealer checked already so we can eliminate that?
09-15-2011 09:28 AM
Chiorny It's fast ticking sound like diesel engine that kind of ticking.
09-15-2011 09:09 AM
Arpd3 Is it a slow click, loud click, fast click?

Can you post an audio clip?

You should also post this in the JKU section since you have a 2008 Jk.

Chiorny Hi they already check that and everything looks good .
09-15-2011 08:46 AM
Arpd3 Any CEL codes?
Check Spark plugs?

2008 Jeep Wrangler make ticking noise from engine !!!

Iím the owner of 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

I have a problem with a ticking noise thatís coming from ONLY when engine is worm /has bean driven for 20min/ from engine area ONLY!! If I press gas pedal around 2000rpm and over 2000rpm I start hearing ticking noise

People from dealership changed catalytic convertor but that wasnít the problem, they changed oil and same thing still hearing ticking noise when engine is worm and when I hit 2000rpms.

What might be the problem?


Thanks
