well for one...where abouts does it come from? the ECU or elsewhere? I have a 90 talon and sometimes the automatic seat belt motor does not engage correctly or something and it clicks like crazy. I have a cd player that beeps a couple times to let me know its turning off...

buy yeah, you need to say more specifically where the "clicking" is coming from

Are you sure it's not the engine cooling off?

Metal expands when heated, shrinks when cooled.

Sounds more like from the fuel rail or injectors area. It's kinda a popping clicking sound.

listen to any car after its heated up and just shut down. you will hear clicks, ticks, pops, and pings all throughtout the engine area, yes from outside the car too, and thats probly what it is. Does it only do it after the engine is hot or all the time, i mean can you start the car, run for 5 seconds then shut it down and it still makes noises?

No worries, I can tell you 100% its the ECU. It always clicks a few seconds after you turn it off. Thats normal, they all do that


EDIT: Oh I just realized you said it goes on for a few minutes, thats definatly not the ECU. I would go with what the other guys said about the heat, and the metal contracting.

* UPDATE*
I just found out what it is. My #1 injector electrical harness is cracked and was off the injector itself. Thats why my car was running like crap, and i think that was the clicking too.
