Hi Guys, a neighbor purchased a 2009 wrangler with a ticking noise. He purchased it with 80k miles, now has 86k miles. The seller told him it was a bad lifter. I think it is a defective head. No engine light is on. It drives fine.
How is the easiest way to determine the problem.
Thanks in advance
Charlie

The 3.8 is pretty notorious for cracked exhaust manifolds.. I would check there first. My black 09 had a cracked one on the drivers side, sounded just like a lifter.
