    Question mk4

    ticking on drivers side in engine area???? driving me bonkers!! it doesnt get faster with revs, it doesnt get slower when u drive slower! it doesnt tick while stationary, only does it if cruising, maintaining speed? if i accelerate itl stop, if i take foot off accelerater it stop! but when foot just resting on pedal it ticks. ive asked in garages, they just stupid n cant even hear it. ive tried turning stereo up 2 drown, but i can still hear it...anyone???

    Perhaps its the charcoal canister, which is emissions related. Ticking from that is normal, I believe.

    Injector pulse should change with engine rpm - I agree with the above, carbon cannister which I believe is on the drivers side at the rear of the engine bay too.
