    engine off...clicking

    sry for posting such a newb thread but i am...i have an 02 wrx 2.0...being 18 and this being my first car that i actually want to care for (had an '86 chevy celebrity b4) ...after driving my car and i turn the engine off i hear a clicking sound...i kno that a lot of cars do this but im wondring if it will be a significant problem in the future...it sounds like the pistons r still moving in the engine...and another clicking sound is coming from around the heat shield so im guessing its the turbo as well...is this normal or not??? shud i be concerned???if it is a problem is there a way to fix it...my car is totally stock

    Uhh, well your pistons are definetly not moving. The clicking is probably normal heat leaving the engine so I would not worry. Welcome to the club!

    the clicking is from the metals expanding and compressing due to heat and change in temp.


    and its the cooling system for the turbo that uses pressure form heat to circulate coolant through the turbo to cool it after the engine has been shut off.....

    ^^^ As mentioned above, this is common and unavoidable. Now if the car still has the noise in the morning, then it's a separate issue
