Ticking noise from engine when car is at operating temperature

Asked by Oct 22, 2018 at 01:30 AM about the 2001 Dodge Intrepid SE FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid 2.7. When the engine
reaches operating temperature there is a ticking
sound. The ticking sound increases when you first
start to accelerate then goes away.  If car is at
operating temperature and is idling it ticks.

1 Answer


Does it have a lot of miles? If yes you might have a lifter going bad, you might try increasing the viscosity of the oil you're using,
