Post more information. What car, what engine? Is it turbo? Give us some more information and you may get some answers.



If it is N/A, the 5th and 6th port actuators will make a clicking noise but you can only hear it with the hood open.



Can you hear the clicking all the time? From inside the car? Only from outside the car? Only with the hood open?

check the two gaskets around the turbo. Mine did that and I found out the gasket from the turbo to manifold was blown.
