A faulty fuel damper can produce a ticking noise, which can be heard inside the cabin when the engine is idling. Replacement of the failed dampener should correct this problem.

    What my car basically does is that it takes a few seconds for it to start. It is usually during cold weather that it takes a while to turn on. Some of the times it wont even make a clicking noise. When it struggles to turn on, it keeps clicking and clicking.
