That is because the car is on and running lol. Does anyone else hear anything?

If you have a CEL then you should buy a code reader or go to a place that will read the codes for you. Then post the codes here for people to help.

The Foxwell NT520 is my personal choice. It is a newer generation than the NT510/Schwaben tool that most recommend. I got mine off eBay for $135 shipped.

Codes from autozone
p0456 - evaporated emissions system very small leak
p052b - coldstart intake A camshaft position timing retarded

The person who had the car before me installed a new camshaft sensor but broke the bolt. ����*♀️It needs drilled out or I need a new valve cover.

It needs drilled out now or I need a new valve cover. This could be causing the CEL, right?

The evaporative codes could be as simple as your gas cap. Perhaps the p052b is causing the noise you're hearing. Where did you just buy the car from?

I bought the car from private party. No warranty or anything. Changed the oil and the CEL is off for now. I’m paranoid about the the timing chain. I may just change it so I can forget about it!
