how many miles? misfire cylinder #6...I would pull the plugs on that cylinder and compare to the others... I would clear code and see if it does come back, if it does, i would swap coil packs (with any other one) and see if the code follows (then it would be a coil pack issue).... and/or remove coil packs on passenger side valve cover and remove valve cover. Inspect the valve springs and look closely at the cylinder 6 valve springs for any breakage (which would cause valves to tap)

Code had been cleared and the oil changed since it was due. ( every 5k ). No problems the load ticking has since been silenced. Still have the Hemi Tick, talked a Chrysler Canada Rep, and a 5.7L expert, 3 Mack - N - Nicks. most of them agreed that dirty oil can screw with the MDS and cause a lifter to hang up.

Good to hear. I was thinking maybe your were on an incline or off camber terrain and might have managed to starve the oil pump for a split second.. if that is even possible with our engine's oiling system.
