According to him he did not do anything. Now 285 miles and three days later the noise is back. I did not try to see if it will go away when warmed up or under load. I was just moving my car from driveway to garage. The oil level is max. Can I continue driving the car, wait and see if noise goes away or tow it to dealer. I really appreciate your advice.
I still get the ticking once in a while but its so infrequent that I've learned to ignore it already, it seems that some dealers are telling people its normal.

If its not constant I would'nt lose any sleep over it. Of course its totaly up to you if you want to pursue it with your dealer.
