    I got used to it myself and after a few weeks, I completely forgot about it. (guess my ears adjusted to it fairly quickly)

    Hello dlpuette,

    I am glad to hear that it was deemed to be normal operation of the car and that there wasn’t anything wrong with the engine in your vehicle. Any other update on the clunking and bucking in the driveline that you stated in your previous post? Thanks for keeping us updated.

    Just an update to confirm the clicking is indeed the injectors. Never had a DI engine before so, live and learn! Attached is the bulletin the dealer gave me about it.

    I'm on my second DI engine... Some are louder than others but they ALL are better in fuel efficiency!
