2009 Chrysler 300 Q&A

2009 Chrysler 300 Question: I have a ticking on my passager rear side around the valves of my 3.5L V6?

I have read the rocker arms go bad in this type of motors. Do I need to buy the whole thing or can I get away with arms and shafts? -
Answer 1
pull valve covers and insp,could be oil build up if not serviced on reg basis -
Comment 1
Serviced regularly with synthetic and only use premium gas. I only have 49,000 miles on the motor. I also read it could be the egr valve or a loose valve. Also there is no check engine light indecating anything is wrong. -
Comment 2
Does it get quieter when the engines warms up or is it always there? -
Comment 3
It's random, but it's getting more often -
Comment 4
Any difference on cold engine/warm engine? More pronounced either way? -
Comment 5
Both warm and cold. It doesn't seem to change in volume, but when the idle changes the ticking changes with it. -
Comment 6
Ok, see answer 1 -
Comment 7
I found out what was the ticking problem. It's not anything in my or anyone else control for taking care of your car. It was the factory, chrysler for a few years had a bad design in the rocker arm assembley and they won't recall it beacause it's not a safety hazard. They redesigned it in 2010. -
