    I've noticed a slight tapping or Clicking sound coming from the engine. at first it sounded mostly like a belt with a warp in it or like a shred tapping as it cycled its path. belt is OK though.

    I think it's a valve tap but not sure. can hear it on the driver side better. it doesn't get louder if you increase rpms. it gets drowned out by the engine when I increase rpms also but I think the 'tap' gets quicker with rpms.

    exhaust is clean.

    I've heard a clicking shortly after start up. It comes from the Evap solenoid was told it's normal. Not sure if that's any help.

    yea kinda isolated it. the engine shield is shaking. iIfound tapping to be inconsistent. I think either the shield is doing it or something else shaking.

    i have another post on a/c I'm updating next.
