Serpentine belt

Pulley (AC ccompressor, power steering pump, Alternator, water pump)

Purge valve

engine valves (ticking as they open and close)

Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

I would start by popping the hood and looking around for anything loose.

You can even remove the serpentine belt and run the engine for a minute or two to see if the noise is no longer there

Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

If the noise is gone, it is related to the seprentine belt or one of the pullies

IT could even be the serpentine belt tensioner or idler pulley

HOw long has it been making this noise?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

If the noise is coming from the engine itself.. like the valves or lifters, then yes, this is serious and yes I would get it looked at right away. However, it is is coming from the belt, it is not so serious and you can drive the vehicle. However, I would still get it looked at soon because the serpentine belt might be coming apart and you dont want it to break on you while driving. Same thing with a pulley

But there are a lot of times where a ticking noise is not a big deal and it is perfectly ok to drive the vehicle.
