I have read and read this entire thread! Looking for a few opinions so I made a short video. I have a distinct tick toward the front of the engine cover. It seems to be most prominent on the oil filter side. I am completely aware of the DI noise but i am concerned that what i may be hearing is of something other. I have an appointment at the local dealership but it’s not for another week and wanted to get a few opinions. It is only heard during cold starts, but tends to get louder after idling for a few minutes only to go away after i drive the short distance home from work. Any thoughts would be appreciated. You can hear the slower paced tick over the DI noise.
