Does anyone else out there have this issue? Every time i start the engine when it's cold it ticks for the first few minutes. Sounds like a lifter or something. It goes away once the oil reaches about 80 degrees. This has been going on since i bought the car about a year ago.
While these Chrysler engines are known for lifter tick, mine doesn't do it. I've been using full synthetic oil since the original factory fill (5.7 engine) was changed.
I found that running a full synthetic oil keeps engines quieter or startup/warmup compared to conventional (dino) oil. Synthetic oil seems to adhere to parts after shutdown and flow better when the oil is cold...
I found this out with my other cars when I switched over to synthetics nearly 20 years ago. I haven't used conventional oil since.
