I recently noticed that the SUV was made a loud ticking sound at startup, getting a little softer as the motor heated up. Returning the vehicle to the purchased dealership, which was inspected for a fee, and found the cause to be the aluminum screws on the left side of the manifold which broke, causing the loud exhaust. I then paid $225 to have the two screws drilled out of the engine, and had the screws replaced along with a manifold gasket.
