Default This can't be the HEMI tick...


Someone give me a hand here. I have a brand new 2016 challenger RT 6spd with only 1500 miles on it.

This noise started shortly after I drove it off the lot and has gotten progressively more annoying.

Its the high pitched noise in the background.

To me it reminds me of when I computer fan spools up and something isn't sitting right.

They (The dealership closest to me) has said its everything from the HEMI tick, to fuel plugs, to valvetrain noise. I just want my damn car back quiet. Can't even enjoy listening to the engine rumble because of this high pitched wirrr

You should take your R/T back to the dealership. Take their mechanic for a ride.
Best they know asap and best you let FCA know too. Document everything for worst case.

New Warranty should cover it.

What ever the problem is, it does not sound good.

I've had two service managers ride with me along with a tech and a dealer rep. They refuse to admit there is even a problem.

I've called dodge corporate customer service (assuming that's who you meant by FCA) since the first day I took it in.

They are refusing to open the engine up because if they can't find an issue they say dodge won't cover any chargers.

They told me they figured out it was fuel injectors because of a mechanical stethoscope, but fuel injectors are never so loud you can hear them going 35+ down the road. This is even audible on the highway.

Take your R/T to a different dealership, not the one you bought it from. It's always good to get a different mechanic looking at the problem. Again, document everything.

Lemon law may be your last effort.

But first, you need to get help from FCA. There is a Dodge rep on here that monitors this site maybe they can help.

This effort will be time consuming, be patient. Again, document everything.

That is not a fuel ejector, I own two different Dodge R/T's with the 5.7L V8 and neither one makes that noise when driving.

Please do keep us posted on your effort.

Hi Zudren,

I'd be happy to follow up on your case if you'd like to PM your VIN.

Hey Kori,

I have a customer care advisor looking into some of this if you still want that VIN I'd be more than happy to give it to you.

UPDATE for today.

I have taken it to another dealer because the second I left the first one the noise started just as loud as ever. The other dealer has acknowledged it is an issue and is getting me to leave the car for a while on Friday. Their mechanic who rode with me was a pretty cool dude, turns out he has friends that work at my place.

As far as the noise still the high pitched wirrrrrr noticing a lot around 2k to 2700 rpms regardless of gear or if its out of gear completely.

Finally ABSOLUTELY PISSED at the first dealership and I'm naming names here.

DO NOT EVER GO TO A CROWN DEALERSHIP ON THE EAST COAST -- IE CROWN DODGE, HONDA, so forth.

Forget that they won't even acknowledge the issue...I've lost that battle. What sucks is I had washed my car off including inside the wheel wells prior to bringing it back the second time because I wanted to make sure nothing on the car itself was making the noise.

I got back a car that has dirt up to the mid line all the way around and all the way down the back including over top of the spoiler onto the trunk lid. SERIOUSLY!? Can't even get a response from them at this point.

PICS BELOW FOR THOSE INTERESTED. Gotta pay to get it detailed now...Notice how everything else is perfectly clean.

Yikes, I'm sorry to see this. If you have any questions or need anything, you can always send your VIN so I can take a look, but if you already have a case going and are ok with it, you can definitely continue working with that case manager.
