Default How to get rid of the tick on my 06 HEMI?

Ive read on here that the 03-04 HEMI's have the tick problem but sometimes my 06 HEMI will also have a tick, any ideas? I have 67k miles on it with 5W/20 Fully Syn Mobil 1.

I have a "tick" sound on my 07 hemi 1500 4x4 on the right side aroun 1500 to 2500 rpms, i was actually on here looking for a fix or how do i make it less.. I also use mobil one sytn.

IT SOUNDS LIKE AN EXHAUST LEAK, BUT IVE CHECKED THAT AND NOTHING LEAKING....

These trucks are famous for the "Hemi tick". If it's not an exhaust leak, then you just have to live with it. Nothing is wrong with the engine, it's just annoying! Just turn your radio up!

If it's coming from the valvetrain it's perfectly normal, but check to make sure it's not due to a broken manifold bolt...

My 300C's tick is louder at 62K than my Ram's at 114K. I don't really notice it that much.
