ticking noise from lifters on hemi

I went to a dealer and told them of a constant "ticking" sound from my 2005 hemi 300c engine. They acknowledged the sound being there, but said that it was "quiet" than most that they have heard.

What's up with that? They said that the noise came form the lifters, but said that thay have heard louder ones and even replaced another customers engine with the same problem.

They did not offer to replace the lifters because it was normal? They said that the factory knows about the problem but has yet come up with a solution.

Does anyone else have this problem and if so, whats the remedy?

It is not really a "problem", just a characteristic. My engine and the hemi in my brother's Ram both "tick" and so does every other one I've heard. I believe the cause is the rather unique design of this engine. Compared to other overhead valve, single cam-in-block V8 engines, the modern Hemi's camshaft is very high in the block, changing the angle between the lifters and the pushrods, and between the pushrods and the rockers. I've seen nothing official and I could be wrong but I think that's why the Hemi has more "clatter" than other modern engines. You might post in the "General Discussion" or "Problems" forums to get more input from more people.

Whatever the reason it does seem to be perfectly normal and does not cause any problems. Step on the gas and the clatter is replaced by a grin on your face!

Thanks for the quick response and information.. do you think that changing the lifters would make a difference? If so, any idea other than the stock lifters, are there any better brands out there?

Again thanks..

Thanks for the quick response.. do you think changng the lifters would make a difference? Other than the stock replacements, are there any better brands that are less likely to repeat this problem once installed?

My car clicks...ticks pretty bad when its cold. Has done it since the day I purchased her. I always thought it was her heals clicking on the ground.

Don't even worry about the clicking. It is very normal and after I have ran my babe real hard she is as quiet as can be. As long as you have a clicking and not a solid knock everything is just fine.

I had a 283 with solid lifters and a large cam and you should have heard that thing tick.

Moose.

I just brought my '05 300c in to the dealer & they said the same thing...normal. They cranked up several C's they had in with approx. the same mileage(40,000) & all had the clicking sound.
