Truck was sitting for a couple of weeks due to some travel. Went to start it this morning, and it ticked loudly almost like a light knock for a solid 10 to 15 seconds. That was followed by it much lighter ticking sound for another 10 to 15 seconds. After that and driving around a little bit it was normal. Could this be the filter? It just seems like a long time to make the noise. Currently has a Wix filter and has never done this before.

Thanks for the input!

Ever run a Fram Ultra on it? My Ram is much older but it cured the ticking when first started that other filters could not do in the cold. Have a good day & long live MOPAR!!!

After a couple weeks of travel? Be happy it started. Just like people they need exercise. If you were in a hospital bed for a few weeks then told to start running around a football field for a few laps you would start making some odd noises as well.

If a daily occurrence then look to change filters to avoid start up noises. smile

Maybe the oil film was lost from sitting so long. What oil do you use?

Curious, why would the filter cause noise?

Nothing to worry about. Sounds far worse than it actually is.

Welcome to the Hemi Tick I mean Truck Club! My 2015 Ram does this from time to time. I have tried various different oils and filters with no effect. I think it has to do with the MDS system. If you shut the engine off and one of the MDS lifters is in compression from opening a valve, it bleeds the oil out of the lifter while the engine sits. So, when you start the engine back up it takes a little while for a bled lifter to pump back up. Thats why you get the tick,tick,tick!

Some Hemi's clatter on start up and others do not. My 2014 Ram 5.7L never has. I had a 2015 Challenger with the 5.7L that had horrible start up clatter. I tried everything to stop it including oil, filters, etc. Dealer said it was normal which was [censored]. Could not stand it and got rid of the car in less than a year. My 6.4L Hemi in the Scat Pack has never done it either.
