Try replacing your oil filter. my truck had a loud ticking sound when i would first start it up when i bought it for a few seconds at start up. i changed my oil and filter at 500 miles and the ticking has gone away. i suspect the check valve in the filter failed .

What brand of oil filter are you using? Fram canisters are notorious for creating hydraulic lifter and tensioner related startup noises.

If the question is directed to me I've experienced the random clatter while using a Mopar and a Mobil1 filter. Those are the only two brands that have been on the truck. Today I actually grabbed 2 Mopar filters while purchasing oil for all the vehicles in the fleet I maintain.

Actually it was a question for anyone and everyone. Both the Mopar and Mobil1 filters have good anti-siphon valve designs and materials. Drain back should not be an issue.

Sounds good to me. Must be the aforementioned "hemi tick".

My 2010 has done this a couple of times within the first 5k miles. Not the normal Hemi tick it was very loud and lasted a few seconds. Dealer wanted to have a closer look but it has not done it for sometime now so we decided to hold off on further investigation.

Not a typical noise you would expect from a new engine!

I agree it is not what you would expect from a new engine. However, it seems like a fairly common condition. I will live with it because I don't want my new engine torn apart on speculation.

I've had my Hemi since March. I ran on the factory oil and filter for the first 2k miles and then I had it changed to Shell oil at my buddy's shop and ran that oil and filter for 3k miles. During this whole time I had the TICK probably a couple of times a week. After reviewing all of the threads on here about oil and filters and receiving advice from Ramtech I had my buddy's shop change the oil to Mobil1 synthetic and a NAPA gold filter about a month ago. Since then I have had the Tick once and the Hemi runs and idles like a champ.

Its funny after I originally started this thread my truck hadn't ticked at start up until yesterday after sitting for around a week. I was hoping it worked it out of its system but I guess I'm not that lucky.

I will say it really doesn't seem to matter what oil or filter is used on the truck. I have used Mobile 1 with a K&N filter with the anti-drain back valve since 1500 miles, I have 12000 on it now and it will still do it every once and a while. It does seem to be after the truck sits for a week or longer, so a lifter bleeding down is probably the culprit. It is defiantly different then the "HEMI Tick" but like the "HEMI Tick" it seems to be a common occurrence, even though I really don't think a new truck should make that pounding sound...scary!! I can only wait for the sound it makes when I start it after being stored all winter.

Hey guys. It's not specific to the hemi. Almost all chrysler vehicles have had the tick for as long as I can remember. My 97 Dakota had it with a 4cyl. Everybody that I knew with jeeps had it too. Its gotten much better with time, 15 years ago it was so loud that it made some of them sound like diesels. In High school we used to play a game where we would yell Jeep if we heard one before we saw it. I'm up to 11K miles now on my 09 and it seems to be starting to sound a little diesel-ish too.
