Hi guys,

I've been getting ticking noise coming from the engine bay constantly. I've stood besides two random civics and they are all making the same noise,

Just want to confirm is this a normal thing for the car?

Thanks

Probably, Civics are direct injected rather than port injected.

As the previous guy stated, direct injected engines run ridiculously high psi mechanical fuel pumps that make a ticking sound. Unfortunate side effect of direct injection but the benefits outweigh the cons. And it is drowned out unless you're standing by the engine bay
