There are a number of factors that could be behind a 2015 Dodge Durango’s engine ticking noise.
Here are just a few common reasons you might hear engine ticking noises from a Dodge Durango:
  • Lack of lubrication
  • Damaged spark plugs
  • ** Damaged or misaligned valves**
When it comes to the possibility of lack of lubrication, you might notice your low oil pressure warning light and/or check engine light is on. You’ll also want to use your dipstick to check the current level of your engine oil.
Certain ticking noises you hear from your engine could be perfectly normal, too, but it’s a good idea to have a mechanic take a look at your engine if you’re not sure what’s causing the ticking noise. That way, if any repairs are necessary, you can take care of them before damage becomes more severe—and more expensive.
While you’re looking after your Dodge Durango, it might be worth taking another look at its car insurance policy.
