Ticking Noise TSB 69-T-29
« on: July 02, 2011, 02:10:56 AM »
I happen to be reviewing some TSBís (for enjoyment :) ) and I came across this one, and a  mystery was solved. Iíve heard a ticking noise in several of my cars, two of my L35ís, L34 and L48 equipped cars, and never bothered to find the root cause because it was barely noticeable. This ticking always seemed to be isolated to the right rear tail pipe area (so I thought).I had checked the exhaust to verify it wasnít an interference issue over the yearsÖ Iím not going to modify the 3/8 fuel line per the TSB recommendation, but itís nice to know the root cause. Itís funny because I never made the correlation that it only occurred on my two fuel line cars, but it does now.

This annoying sound has been in my car since I purchased it 6yrs ago. I kept quiet hoping it wasn't anything serious while at the same time driving on pins and needles. Like you, now that I know it isn't serious I can rest a little easier. Thanks for sharing!

You know, my L48 car has been making a "ticking sound" around the right side rear wheel area since I've owned it. I always thought it was some sort of exhaust interference or leak. I'll have to check out this TSB and see if I can fix it. That would be wonderful!

What if you just put some rubber hose that was split around the lines to insulate them from each other or is it something else that makes the ticking?

WOW!
since 1984 my L48 pace car has had a strange undiagnosed ticking sound.
The rest of the story.
It just OK with me, I am unwilling to start hacking the lines, Fine for the Car-UNSAT on the Submarines I work on.
