Very annoying ticking sound that just developed

Not sure if any of you have this. I'm getting a fast, almost fuel injector sound ticking that comes ago as if it were a flick of a switch. I believe its coming from outside, although It sounds like something on the passenger side. If I open the door I can really hear it. It happens at any RPM, drive or in park, does not matter. Killing me. Going to bring it in most likely. It just started happening. I've got 50'000 kilometers on the car.

You've got the right idea by planning to bring it in to your local dealer, Darth_Focus. Once you've received a diagnosis, be sure to send me a private message with your full name, VIN, servicing dealer, and best daytime contact number so I can get this escalated.

Sounds like it could be a leaf stuck in the HVAC blower.

Just made the appt. but I traced it down to the fuel pump under the rubber boot. It's very loud when it starts ticking. Wonder if it's on its way out

Turns out the sound is the Evap Solenoid underneath the high pressure pump. Ford ordered parts and are replacing under warranty on Monday. They also ordered a headliner attach kit as mine is falling when it's cold. That's also being repaired under warranty. So far no complaints.

I had to have my evap solenoid replaced too: mine started clicking (I didn't know what the sound was) and it eventually died, setting a Check Engine light and making the car hard to start.

This is happening to mine..50k mikes....cycles on and off...not related to engine rpm. Sounds like it is coming from the thing under the rubber boot on top of the engine.

On the driver's side of the engine bay next to the battery? That's the DI high pressure fuel pump. Might be the evap solenoid underneath it as well.

Does it sound like this, or is there another clicking?
