    yes !!
    i hear faint clicking at heart of my punto.

    a close listening (engine off) near the air filter near the battery i hear a faint click..click...click every second.
    i am convinced that it is from the core of engine.
    but curiosity is killing me. is it alive?:cool:

    no not rat , neither metal shrinking.

    it sounds very sophisticated and controlled. i hear it whenever i want to hear it like early morning or when i open the hood.

    i dont think it is a problematic sound it should be something of solenoid or something inside keeping the clockwork for ecu or something related as i have heard it in my previous mjd indica vista .

    You can hear the tick tick from somewhere on the dashboard if you suddenly raise the windows and turn on AC on hot sunny days.
