GTA engine ticking when hot

Noticed this a few times recently when getting out of the car to open the garage, the engine is making a rhythmic ticking noise.
Any guesses, or is this actually normal and I'm suffering from Alfa Paranoia?

Its normal mate, common thing on the later V6s it would seem...something to do with the charcoal canister valve, located under the scuttle panel on the drivers side I beleive....More info can be found on a previous thread HERE

Re: GTA engine ticking when hot

I take it this is once you have switched off the engine, if so dont worry it's just the engine cooling down after some vigourous excercise.
Rythmic ticking could be normal injector noise or something you could get a custodial sentence for.
If it's when running just pass it by your mechanic to ease the Alfa paranoia.

Mine does this when hot idling, I wondered vaguely about it, good to hear it appears to be normal.

Not when switched off, even my duff mechanical brain can identify cooling noises

Thanks CS, I can relax now. It's not a particularly intrusive noise, but was a little worrying.
