Has anyone been successfully able to get rid of the ticking noise caused by the lifters? 3.6 engine

I’ve put in really good oil correct w rating, a OEM filter and a can of seafoam. I then change the filter at 600-800 miles. So even if the lifters are worn or sticking it really helped

you put the seafoam in with the oil? any special kind of sea foam?

Are you talking about the one second of ticking at startup, or idling normal? Mine have never ticked except sometimes at startup, especially if I'm nearing an oil change.

I had a tick at startup. Switched Mobile 1 oil to Pennzoil Platinum 5-20 and it no longer does it at start or any other time. My son did the same thing to his Ram 5.7 hemi with the same results. They also make a Pennzoil Ultra Platinum that is really good but costs more.

I had the tick just repaired in my 14. Seafoam nor oil would stop it so i brought it in to my local shop Once the mechanic got in there, the bearing? on the rocker was deformed and caused damage to the camshaft as well. Was a costly job

Sometimes it’s cheaper to get a used engine from the wreckers with less mileage as a bonus. By the time you get your engine apart and change just a few parts etc. I’ve seen it cost a lot more
