2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan 3.8L 24000 km

My car is making a ticking noise in the engine. Almost like a muffled playing card in bike spokes. I especially noticed it after an oil change, but I seem to recall it being there before as well.

After the car warms up the noise disappears. The noise does not seem to be tied to RPM, however I don’t hear it until I start accelerating. It just doesn’t get any faster with rpm. I don’t have any codes or fluid leaks. Oil levels are normal.

Any ideas what this could be? What can I try doing to resolve this?

0:18 ticking starts.

0:34 I rev the car into higher RPMs to show the noise persists though RPM at the same frequency. Ticking noises will come and go throughout the video.

The car only seems to make noise when its moving.

    Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! Anyway you could get some video/audio of the noise? Not being rpm dependent is strange. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Dec 8 '18 at 13:05
  • Posted some videos of the noise while driving. Also posted videos of the car idle before and after the drive as well as the oil level. – Francis MacDonald Dec 8 '18 at 22:31
  • I can hear the noise you're talking about, but have no clue what it is. Very strange noise. I do, however, have a suggestion for you. I'd suspect you have the same basic warranty coverage in BC as we do here in the States. You are well within your Bumper-to-Bumper warranty period and mileage. Take it to the dealership and have them figure it out for you. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Dec 8 '18 at 22:45
