Ticking noises from engine
I bought a 2012 wrangler in December. I've been hearing ticking noises as if there is no oil. I checked the oil and it is full. Does anyone else have or hear the same thing.

Yeah, my wife's 2012 does that, my brotherinlaw and I figured its the timing chain:banghead:, ride out till the warranty runs out. Then swap in a hemi.:whistling:

Her pilot bearing also squeals when the tranny is in fourth gear...kinda annoying, especially when you figure how much you pay for a NEW vehicle:doh:

Im goin to let it slide till the warranty comes close and then go pitch a bitch till they change them out:firedevil:

Sorry, but I have no idea what a banghead is. Can't jeep fix it with the warranty?

Its supposed to be an icon.....and no I don't think they can...I've heard a few of them doing it...I believe its built that way.
