Alright bought this car about a year ago and every time I do a cold start and the bamf as it warms up their is three ticks that come from the right wheel area. No more or less than 3 ticks, and the kicker is the dealer can't seem to reproduce it. Smh That being said any inside would be much appreciated thanks

Lol, I get the same ticks after the car has warmed up for a minute or two. It is 3 or 4 distinct ticks from the back right of the car that don't occur again until it cools back down.


I honestly think it is the heat shields over the exhaust in the back expanding.

Sincere apologies for the ticking concern. Could you PM me regarding this issue and reference this thread? I'd like to investigate this further for you!

It's the trunk monkey. :monkee:

In all seriousness though it sounds like the EVAP vent solenoid seft test upon start up.
There are tons of threads here about this because this question gets asked a lot.
