"ticking" noise at idle...

My car has been making a ticking noise at idle almost since Day1. It almost sounds like valve noise, but the rate is about 250 ticks/minute...Anybody experience this?

It is from the direct injection. The 335 isn't bad, in other cars the DI can make the motor almost sound like a diesel.

Nobody said it wasn't a defect... It's just a very common one possibly.

There are two types of Knock/Click out there. One is the fuel injection, the other is some bad juju involving lifters and such.

A louder metallic ting ting ting, is bad and should be looked into. However the tick tick tick is allegedly normal, though kinda lame.


Otherwise, EVERY 335 on the lot made the same noises.
