2013 Dodge Grand Caravan - Ticks

ticking sound from the engine

How many miles? Please post an audio clip so that we can hear it. Does it get louder or change frequency when you accelerate? Any additional information you can offer will help us. We don’t have much to go on right now.

What is the oil level? When was the oil and filter changed?

In addition to needing to know the odometer mileage, and whether it changes upon acceleration, we also need to know whether the noise appears when the engine is idling, and if the noise goes away after a few minutes, when the engine warms-up.

It would also be nice to know how often the oil is changed, in terms of both miles and elapsed time. (Hint: If the vehicle is driven rarely, elapsed time can be much more important than odometer miles.)

Google “Pentastar tick”. It is a common problem with your engine. You might check with your dealer, Dodge has the extended the warranty on this engine for a cylinder head issue, which might be helpful in your situation.
