ok so i fixed my roof and it works perfectly now...

I pulled the car out of the carage and let it idle and decided to check the cabin filter.

pulled out filter, it needs a change so i will get another one, put it all back together and was admiring the car...

suddenly the car starts a loud ticking noise, engine rpm never change, no shake, just this annoying tick. no engine mannerism change at all.

it does not sound like a loose rocker (like my old chev had) it sounds more external.

Does anyone know where I should start looking?

Open the hood and try to locate the noise. I have a feeling its part of the fuel system your hearing. On the driver side just forward of the shock mount there is a device that recirculates gas fumes, i forget the exact name.

Yep, mine has the same tick coming from that device. Whatever it is.
