Had the oil changes and all fluid levels checked. Now there is a tick,tick,tic,........tick, tick,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,tick sound heard the most at the drivers front wheel well. went to the dealer and the tech says it;s normal. It's the gears in the extenal oil pump. Should stop around 20000 miles. Is this true?

My truck did come of the lot with a random ticking at idle. At 21k I have not heard it for the last 8k.

My tick went away somewhere before 10,000 miles, I can't remember now... The tick came back at my last oil change (15k) with 1,200 miles on this oil change I think it is starting to go away again.
From all the reading and research I have done on this, it is not a problem and seems to be more dependant on oil brand than anything. Seems that on my truck Delo has made the tick come back (last oil change), where the Rotella and Mobil 1300 (previous changes) didn't make the DMAX tick after an oil change. Funny, huh??


No worries..

It will come and go usually showing itself after an oil change then subsiding. Mine went away around 10,000 miles but still would surface once in a while. At 65,000 I don't remember hearing it for quite some time.

I do remember being royally upset at the page members that got their trucks first and not mentioning it. I was mad when my truck ticked. Sounded horrible.

Anyway... it ends up somebody did mention it but I missed the thread.

The tick is a non-issue. Just an annoyance.Edited by: hoot

My 02 just started ticking again the other day, although it's not as pronounced as it was when it was new...almost 19k miles now.

Mine's ticked from day one, still ticking at 76,130 miles (heard it at the Mickey D's drive up this morning getting coffee). Not a problem - I recall a great wailing and cursing from a *BUNCH* of people a couple years ago when this first came up. Guys were screaming like banshees, wanting bybacks and engine swaps and so forth - some people just need to get a horse - and a life!!
