Ticking

I was just wondering if anyone else is hearing a ticking at idle for the V6. I don't know if it has anything to do with the direct injection? I hope I do not have to take the car in the dealership already.

it is a manual. I can hear the valves ticking, when I accelerate. I that does not sound like a problem. Just a certain tick at idle. sounds like a clock ticking. Kinda weird.

Welcome to the wonderful world of DIRECT INJECTION. My SKY Redline also "Ticks" due to it's direct injection. It is normal, and you will get used to it.

Thanks Xmicro_SS. That is a huge relief. I didn't want to see my baby in the shop so early.

Trust me guys, it is the direct injection. It almost sounds like a metronome. It does get quitter after about 5000 miles, but you also get used to it.

Mine does the exact same thing. I was worried at first but I did a search on here like a month ago and found threads saying it was normal due to direct inject. After about 1400 miles my tick has actually gotten a little quieter.
