So recently I've noticed my '16 SX makes a creaking/clicking noise whenever I push down on the throttle. Usually appears right after cold starts but does stay longer if its "cold" outside; began becoming more apparent as well when "colder" weather started becoming regular (I say cold/colder loosely as I live in SoCal). Keep in mind the sound only happens when the car is on and the engine is running; have tried checking when the car is off and there is no sound whatsoever. Any ideas what it may be or if anyone has dealt with the same problem, what did you do to make it go away? Took it to a dealership a few weeks ago and since they "couldn't replicate the problem," they were trying to charge my $145 to check the problem, which would only be reimbursed if they find something wrong with the car that would be covered under warranty, or if they themselves do the work on whatever the problem may be :rolleyes:
