I'm having the same exact problem as Glai8r and Spott. The ticking goes away after my engine warms up and only ticks right after start up if the engine is cold. Does anyone have a definite answer or a general idea of what could be happening?

Mine does the exact same thing for a good while after start up, was told was common and not a big deal. Had two Hemis and two 4.7s do it with no problems

It's the lash adjusting as the engine warms up, same concept as a hydraulic lifter....as long as it goes away shortly after startup don't worry about it it's fine, if you want to be extra cautious like me, don't run the truck real hard or rev extremely high rpm until it's warm/stops ticking...

Thanks for the input, I was begining to get worried lol. I guess I'll keep an eye on it and see how things go. It just recently started ticking so I was a little scared for the truck.

Yeah mine will sometimes not do it, just depends I guess, what would also help with this is a good quality oil filter. Sometimes even though an aftermarket filter may fit your engine, it doesn't have the correct properties, or at least the same properties as stock. I'm using mobil ext perf and I never even researched if it is the same as stock, but assume it is or better being a quality filter. I recommend sticking with stock or high quality filters, this isn't a place to be cheap, and beware, big name does not equal big quality....fram is one of the worste filters out there, but they have marketing down pat!
