Most time a ticking noise is caused by a valve lifter malfunction or a worn pivot on a rocker arm. if the noise appears to be coming from the valve cover (inside) that's usually where the problem is. Depending upon which engine you have the repair procedure will vary. (consult a haynes or chilton manual)
Before taking anything apart though many times a lifter noise will respond to a good engine additive like marvel oil or lucas engine conditioner. Neither one will harm the engine and it may quiet it down for you!

The ticking noise is most likely your tranfer case chain. the chains in this case...overtime....will stretch, causing the chain to have enough slack the hit the bottom of the case.

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee just started making a clicking or rattling noise when starting up. The noise isn't audiable when driving. I've checked the oil level and it is normal. It is time for an oil change,...

so it goes away after a bit, that could be cause theres no oil on the top part of your engine, thats normal. wait till it gets older, it will be louder.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a loud ticking noise, won't start.

Your problem is likely a bad battery and/or corrosion on the battery terminals. Remove the cables from the battery terminals and clean them with a wire brush or other tool. NOTE: always remove the negative cable first and reconnect it last. Reconnect the cables and then try to start/jump the vehicle again. If that doesn't clear the problem, take the battery to your local auto parts store or supplier and have them check it. You will probably need a new one.

I have a ticking noise in my 2004 jeep cherokee. This noise starts off very light and progrssively gets louder. It will finally stop and then start over again as if it was running in a sequence. I beleive...

From here, it would be silly to tell you what is causing that. It shouldn't be too hard to listen and look till you find where the noise is coming from, if it's inside the engine, it may be a valve lifter "hanging up" Marvel oil will generally help there. if it's a control unit or relay don't be too quick to condemn may be getting an errant signal from elsewhere. But, you need to find it to fix it!!!

I have been told the ticking noise my engine is

these is an old fix, and yes it is ok to do this, but it is better to add a can of Berrymans Chemtool run about 25 miles and drain oil.
