My tempest is nearly a year old and although very pleased I have noticed the engine seems to sound a bit clicky ?
It is a petrol model but sounds more like a diesel,has anyone else noticed this ?

the fuel injection system on the petrol engines tend to make a clicking noise.... no idea if its something to worry about tho.

No nothing to worry about, as Tempest says the injectors are noisy but they are little solenoids opening to meter the fuel through

Thanks for the replies,I forgot to say in my first message that the clicky noise is when the engine is ticking over when stationary.

Seems worse on idle as the clicking just gets lost in engine noise as you rev it.
