What could make a tick-tick-tick sound from the front drivers side of the car????
My guess is that by replacing one of the coolant lines we are somewhat choking the pump.
I really hope someone with a stock intake can prove me wrong.
P.S.
Just so we are on the same page...a proper installation would consist of replacing 1 air hose and 1 coolant hose.
Nah, it's a problem...I have that same damn annoying ticking that seems to get louder the longer you sit at idle. :mad: It's not from the CAI...I got the ticking this past March and have had my CAI since June of last year. I had the dealer trouble shoot it but they couldn't figure it out. My friend and I did and we thought we had it...we had unplugged the sensor by the firewall mounted on top of the brake booster and the ticking stopped...we'll I had the dealer replace the part but the sound is still there. I'm going to have them check the valves next time I go in for an oil change. My old Miata had a similar ticking sound and it was from a valve that wasn't getting enough oil to it. I'll let you know if I find anything out.

Re: Re: For all CAI users...did you ever notice this when you are @ idle?
