Odd clicking noise

Recommended Posts

I have an '02 Boxster with about 40k on it. When I put my ear up to the side intake vents, there is a passenger side ticking noise from the engine that sounds like the valves. When I put my ear up to the driver's side, I don't hear anything. Is this something to be concerned about?

I think this is probably normal. I have a UK car so I guess your passengers side is my drivers side, I too have a faint ticking rather like a loud watch. This is my theory. Sound can come out of the Drivers side vent (UK) as there is a cooling fan behind the vent so noise can travel out easily. I think the noise might be the injectors, not sure, some previous cars I've had had ticking injectors but I'm not sure about Porsche ones. As the other side is the air intake its difficult for other engine noises to escape. Mine has always done this, its only feint but when I open the door I can just hear it.
