All AU V8s do it at some stage. It's an annoying noise, but generally harmless.

Did they say why you needed a new one?

Re: Perge Canister solenoid??

The main reason he told me to replace it was fuel consumption. He mentioned that i'd be losing top end performace and using alot more fuel.
The techo who did the recall work told me that it was a common thing and that there would be no harm done if i didn't replace it. That ticking noise is so annoying...
Not to sure about the fuel thing though???
