You have a supercharged?Any idea what this clicking noise is? Itâ€™s kind of hit or miss when it happens. I hear it only on idle.
A little more information. Its a 2012 RRS HSE. Has about 62k on it. I started it up this morning to take my kid to school and it sounded fine no clicking. It was about a 5-7 mile drive and I still didn't hear anything. Went to the gym about 4 miles away and it was fine again. When I left the gym I started it up and heard the clicking noise. I started driving back home about 7-10 miles and didn't hear it again. Pulled into my driveway and it sounded fine. Its kind of baffling when this noise happens.You have a supercharged?
If you do, it could be this:
Thanks this is definitely helpful. It does seem to be rhythmic and doesn't change with throttle movement. I was worried that it may be the timing chain, but I believe that is more of a rattle sound than a constant clicking. I had it in to an Indy dealer about 2 months ago and they said they didn't hear anything concerning with the timing chain, but I guess you never know.It's really difficult to tell from all the competing sounds, wind, etc. I did hear what might be the electric fan ticking. This is a known issue and is an early sign you'll need to replace the fan. The best way to listen for it and record video evidence, is to leave the hood closed and listen through the grill. It will be a rhythmic tick that is unrelated to throttle movement. Ours began making the sound earlier this past winter, then it stopped one day and I haven't heard it since. I found a decent deal on ePay so I went ahead and bought a replacement. They usually run about $400-$500. I read on these boards that if left unchecked, additional damage/wear may occur to the cooling system, but I cannot confirm that.
