I have notised lately that the emissions purge valve has started to tick realy loud,one can hear it with the hod down and inside the car.Stops to tick when you disconnect the MAF found that out when tracking down the sound(located beteween MAF and down low on the airbox with lines going to the intake and the charcoil canister).It hasn't been ticking that loud before cause I haven't heard it before
Has anybody else notised something similar on his or her car?Normal?

Re: Emissions purge valve ticking? (Skogster)

It's supposed to tick, I know that. Loud ticking, like a noisy fuel pump, wheel bearing, etc, means it might be about to fail. I recently had a CE light that I traced to a broken wire to the purge valve. maybe check the wiring or the voltage to the wiring. The bentley recommends connecting a 12V source directly to the valve to see if it works correctly, and checking for voltage at the connector. Not sure how much they are though.
