There seem to be two distinct sources of "ticking" noises from my 2015 2LT AT, 67k miles. The louder of the two sources I have determined is the purge valve solenoid behind the engine. I've read differing accounts on whether this is normal for the purge valve, and many reports where replacing the assembly makes the noise go away. Is this purge valve ticking really something to be expected, or is it a sign of impending failure? I have no engine codes yet.

If you can easily hear it from inside the car and you're not Superman...It's on its way out. It may.make noise forever and be fine, or it may die next week. But a new one will almost always be quieter.

Thanks guys, picked up a new one from Amazon for about 30 bucks.. Gonna swap it in along with some new spark plugs this weekend. Slowly but surely my pre-owned Cruze is getting rebuilt into prime condition. I'm not a "car guy" but I like to work on what I can, and between Youtube and Cruzetalk I'm able to do quite a bit of maintenance.
