  1. Engine tick

    Thanks again and thanks for the videos. I wish someone would put out a repair manual, rather have one handy especially working on the engine. The job doesn't look that hard, I may give it a try.
  2. Help! Please.

    What do you mean, it will crank, but not turn over? Without knowing much else I'd check the fuses.
  3. Engine tick

    Thanks, that's about what I thought. I could probably do it myself and save some money, but I'm getting tired of working on cars, so maybe I'll let my mechanic do it, at least find out what he'll charge. I saw a few videos, and just to replace the sparkplugs you have to pull the intake manifold, not sure that's was a good design idea. Is there a gasket to replace on it too? So I assume, going after the rockers isn't much more work. Other wise the car seems fine and I hope to get about 100K out of it, fingers crossed. I'm petty much old school not used to plastic engine parts.
  4. Engine tick

    We recently bought this 2014 Journey AWD 3.6, 112K Miles, when it's cold there is a predominate tick from the engine. It doesn't quite go away when warm but isn't as noticeable I assume it's from the rockers, as I've learned they can be a problem. I plan to have the sparkplugs replaced soon. I am thinking of having the rockers replaced at the same time, since I found out how much you have to remove just to get to the sparkplugs. Not sure I'm up to doing this myself, any advice on the subject. Average price to replace plugs and rockers by a mechanic?

    Thanks but the problem is I want a book not a CD or down load.

    Thanks for the reply, I've looked on line, can't find a repair manual specific for the Journey especially the 3.6 engine. My guess is it's lumped in with another vehicle's manual, which one? I guess I'll have to do some more searching. All in all it seems like a pretty good vehicle for my wife. I'm more used to Subaru's and working on them so I have bit to learn.
  7. Hi I'm new here!

    Glad I found this place. I'm a home mechanic, do it yourself person. Just purchased my first Dodge Journey so I'll probably be asking several questions and hope to learn enought to answer some later. First question I have is how do I find a manual for this car? The local parts dealer told me there isn't one, is that true? How do you work on them without a manual?
