It's actually not doing it at all now but when it was it only took about five minutes to disappear.

No problem with the questions. It just seemed to stop over the winter but maybe I just never paid much attention. When I did notice the sound I would start it up in my garage and let it idle down before pulling out. When I pulled out I got out to move cars around and left it running. When I went back to head to work I would notice the sound on the drivers side, slight tap tap tap. So it had Been running for only a few minutes. After getting to work, which is only about ten minutes I would check for the sound before shutting down and there was never any sound. So like I said I have 34,000 Kms on it and performance wise is running strong. I will check more carefully over the next few days and let you know if its gone or just quiter. Hope this helps somewhat.

Let me clarify some differences in the noise you are hearing as this can be strictly subjective and have multiple sources.
If the wrist (piston) pins are "floated" in these engines, meaning that they are not pressed into the connecting rods and are retained in the pistons with snap rings or buttons, then some of this noise can be normal when the engine is cold. If the pins are floated, which could be, like I said, I don't know for sure, then it is possible that this noise is coming from one or more pins that may have more clearance than the others. If that is the case, then this sound could be normal with this engine. However, let me be clear on this, if this engine makes the same noise when it is at operating temperature, then it needs to be reported under warranty and investigated. Also if the pins are pressed into the connecting rods, which some OEMs are, then this noise is from too much clearance between the piston pin and the aluminum piston and should be investigated.
In the US we have federal law that states that it you report a problem during the warranty period and it is not considered to be warrantable by the dealer and later fails when it is out of warranty, then it has to be considered to be warrantable under the manufactures original warranty. I don't know about Canada's laws. So, with that said, get this noise reported on a dealer work order during the warranty period and you are covered.
I might also add that when you are listening to a "noise" recorded on a cell phone and played on a computer, it is hard to determine the origin. May variables. Ask any mechanic and he may have a different opinion as to whether or not this is normal. The only way to know for sure is to have an experienced dealer technician (mechanic) who has had the experience with this type of noise to investigate it. Some have said that they think this is normal and not to worry. For your own peace of mind, be sure you get this checked out if the noise is still present with a warm engine. IMO

I have 26,000 miles on mine now and it still does it at the drive thru. It is only on the drivers side that I notice the noise. It is a tic not a knock, that is for sure. I know the difference between the two. It sounds reminiscent of an exhaust tic that would happen in the older style engines with an exhaust manifold leak. Does that sound familiar to anyone?

My 2013 with 500 miles on it does the same noise, i listened to it close the first day i started it up to go to work, but as being a mechanic and a little reading on here i decided it was normal...after all my buddies '03 hemi with 160k miles makes the same subtle tick

I've never owned a Hemi, but I've test driven many in my researching the truck purchase. I fired one up on the lot this weekend...same sound. I think you're fine. For peace of mind, simply have dealership look at it. Have them document it on service ticket, then drive it like you stole it a while. Switch to synthetic oil.

I have listened to many "Hemi Tick" recorded sounds on You Tube and this does not sound like the notorious Hemi Tick. The Hemi Tick is more of a clicking sound that would be associated with the valve train. The sound that was recorded and noted in this thread sounds more pronounced like a knock. You can hear the hollow sound which I think is associated with the piston and connecting rod. Of course like I said before, please have the dealer service staff listen to this (not the salesman).

Mine has the same "tick,tick tick" at idle even after fully warmed up, not a knock, I've got 920 miles on it, I'm not going to worry about it, first oil change I will switch to full synthetic again, and monitor how it sounds again. In that video it did sound faintly more pronounced, the knock that is, not trying to freak you out but I would take that advice and have a tech look at it and make note of it. Best not to worry!
