Engine Tick (previously covered here-somewhere)
Hello, forgive me for shifting current postings with mine here.
I have the engine ticking
I took it to the dealer.
See no ticking, hear no ticking, smell no ticking.
Actually it was also checked (presumably) for coolant smell.
Nothing found.
I smell the coolant and hear the ticking.
Anyone get either of these resolved?
I still have the warranty on the engine.

I was at a local mechanic and he listened to the running engine. He said the ticking sound is the fuel injector modulation. I will accept that. But, I am still concerned about the elusive coolant smell.
Thanks for reading.

Yeah it’s the shitty bearings on the rocker arms. $7 part 4 hours labor
Someone on the expediters forum said they redesigned the bearings. It wasn’t clear to me if he was saying it came with the 2017 or 2018 engine.

Well I bought some last month and they looked just like the cheap Chinese parts that came out of the motor. I think that person is misinformed.

Sometimes new parts don’t fit old engines. Maybe the redesign caused the parts to not be backwards compatible.
