View Full Version : why is this shit clicking?

02-23-2009, 07:13 PM
Hey guys, so I just installed a newer K03, the awesome heatshield from here, and a new ebay 2.5" test pipe. The test pipe for some reason still has not thrown a CEL, which is nice, but the shitty thing about it is that I barely fit that fuckin 02 censor in it. The manifold was right next to it, and I basically re-threated that bitch while screwing it in.

Anyways, everything seems to work good. I might still have a slight boost leak somewhere but thats another problem.

Now for the question. I went for a drive, and when I got back, I checked out the engine, and this little thing was clicking while the car was running.


Anyone know whats going on?

Oh and ignore the shitty intake setup. I bought it this way, and will shortly be organizing the area a bit nicer. [wrench]

Yeah but it was clicking like 2 times a second

Its your N80 (evaporative emissions purge valve). Unless it throws a cel for an evap leak, I'd just leave it be. Doesnt really sound like anything is wrong.

its the evap canister purge valve you hear clicking. its normal to hear it click but maybe not that much/often. usually will only operate during idle. if the valve is faulty sometimes it will set a code for incorrect flow[confused].

EVAP purge solenoid. It doesn't just operate at idle.

Useless piece of crap taking up space in my engine bay. Mine is capped off. You can eliminate a lot of the useless pcv shit.

^^^ As mentioned above, you should be fine. It usually ticks away.
