    Faint ticking sound !

    Heard a faint ticking sound this evening when I was putting the car in the garage. It sounded like it was coming from behind the dash, but I stuck my head under the bonnet and it sounds like it is coming from the back left of the engine bay, maybe behind the alternator area ??

    Seems to come and go. Was ticking away for a minute or 2 and then just stopped. I am thinking it is the ECU chceking stuff ?? Electronic stuff for the throttle ??

    Can't say I have ever heard it before, so I don't know whether this is normal or not.

    Any1 any ideas ?? :?

    Mine does the ticking malarky as well.

    Glad to know it's normal, as in somebody elses car does it.

    I think it may simply be something to do with the heating/ventilation system as it only does it when the engine is warm.

    Regds,

    It is most strange. The Engine does make some weird noises. I just put it down to being vauxhall and all the electronic gadgets in there !
