Hemi ticking

After I got done towing from home to Harlan (550 miles or so), I noticed a ticking in the Commander on cold start. It sounds like a baseball card in bike spokes. If I go about 30 seconds under acceleration, then back off, when I get back under acceleration the ticking is gone and won't come back for the duration of that use.

The ticking certainly seems to come from the passenger side, and will increase in tempo and sound with the increase in speed. It is definitely correspondent with the accelaration.

Re: Hemi ticking

Would either of those options go away in 30-45 seconds of driving?

Re: Hemi ticking

When I had a crack in my XJ's exhaust manifold, it made that noise when cold, but it went away as it warmed up and the expansion of the metal closed up the gap.

Re: Hemi ticking

The hemi in the wife's durango has a pretty good exhaust leak on passenger side. Can really hear it when its cold. Goes away after it starts to warm up. Maybe something to look at.
