    My beautiful engine tick!

    So I got it... and it got louder after my initial oil change... I changed it with Royal Purple 5W-20 (already had the oil so used it... switching to Valvoline high mileage oil after 100K.
    I hope the previous owner didn't put a much thicker oil in it just before they gave it to the dealer. My beautiful engine tick!

    Anyway, saw one post about it... I gotta get it checked out. '16 3.6l w/98k miles... oughta be fun!

    If you have a 2016 you have a 3.6l V6

    How long do you own it? Was it warranted or as is?
    Factory warranty still valid?

    Hey... had it less than a month but I did buy a 3yr/36k mile warranty on the power train.
    I'll schedule it to go in and have them diagnose it...

    @JPNinPA
    Wow... don't think I will be taking on the task of rocker arm replacement. Wonder what the dealer will say when I take it to them?!
    I'd probably like to do the work on an older project vehicle... I've been amazed at miles on vehicles only because I have a work truck so I barely put miles on my cars... <10,000 a year and most times much less, put about 7,500 on my Tucson last year that I traded in for this Jeep.

    Hopefully they go through them all and dont just fix one when the next is ready to fail.
