First time poster here. About three weeks ago my 2014 Jeep Patriot, 2.4 liter, began making a strange, rythmic noise after I turn the engine off. The noise seems to be coming from the engine bay on the left side, near the belts. It sounds like a clicking or a ticking noise is the only way I can explain it. I am just wondering if anyone has a clue what it could be? I sent my friend, a service tech at a Chrysler dealer, a video and he said he has no clue what it could be. Please help!
Here is a link to the YouTube video referenced above that I sent to my friend:
1) My Patriot has approx. 34,000 miles on it and oil changes have always been performed on time. I use full-synthetic.
2) While running, engine noise remains normal, as in it sounds the same as it has since I purchased it brand new.
3) I have noticed no issues while driving.
4) My code reader reports zero (0) codes or issues.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide, I really appreciate it!
