Negative. They didn't do crap. They are terrible. Getting a field manager now and getting a different dealer to work on it eventually. I did change to royal purple 0w 40 and it seemed to help with lifter noise and after car is hot you barely hear the noise.

I find Mobile, BP, Sunoco brand fuel and Pennzoil Ultra 0-40 helps as well. It really seems like a timing and or combustion issue. Dealership sucks and I'm searching for an independent MOPAR specialist in northern Virginia.

I hear ya. Try the royal purple. It makes it run smooth and better than Mobil or penzoil. I'm convinced. The noise won't get fixed by dealers ever I doubt. It might just be the MDS lifters and the bad design by chrysler

Hello everyone , I found the reason behind this noise but still haven't fixed it. Oil PSI low causing this issue. Start up your car and watch the oil pressure gauge in the center Dash. You can get to it by checking engine gauges and find oils pressure exact psi. Once my engine goes down to 25 to 30 Psi the noise kicks right in. When cold and higher oil pressure. No noise. I'm trying to figure out if the normal pressure as most people say is 25 to 30 but let me tell you. If you give it to 700 rpms and oil pressure goes to 32. POOF. Noise gone. If it's "normal" 600 rpms and 25 to 30 rpms. Boom clunk clatter vibration noise. I'm going to my mechanic again. I found the culprit now to fix the issue. I need to keep oil pressure at 32 Psi minimum.

12srt8392 if that's your problem then get yourself a system 1 oil filter been using them for years, very low oil pressure drop across the filter and a very high total area of filtering

I'll try that filter bro. But I found that royal purple almost cured this issue. Thanks for the tip. You asking about exhaust mods? I left mine stock. MDS mode with aftermkt makes tons of droning. However I do extensive research and found that if I was to do it. I would go with corsa sport watch this video it's pretty good and will show you what is what

I've got what I believe is the the same thing going on my 2013 I just bought two months ago and unfortunately the warranty just expired. Did your's start leaking ever? Did you have it replaced under warranty? If not how much did they hit you to replace it?

Water pump may be bad in mine as well. Sounds like a bearing noise
