View Full Version : A little concerned

08-05-2007, 07:58 AM
Well lately I had my car chipped/DV replaced.
I felt like I wasn't boosting as much as I was the first day that I got the chip.
When I started the car the other day, during the first 30 secs of high idle, the engine seemed to have a clicking noise that was pretty loud when I opened my hood. Then after the high idle it stopped and was normal.
I think I probaly have a boost leak?
Should I get it pressure tested?
Where could I get it done?

Where is the clicking coming from? If it is coming from the passenger side, above the fender well, that is normal.

yeah i have that too. What causes that clicking?

Secondary air pump during cold idle?

how much higher was the idle than usual?

where was the clicking noise coming from in the engine compartment?

Well it seems like it is coming from behind the engine close to the passenger firewall.

The PCV system. The clicking should be coming from near the air box.

Well it seemed to be coming from the same area as this sound. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7UCeRA8oJU . It went from the high clicking to the clicking in that video.
It isnt the valve on top of my airbox.
