after i drive my car and stop it, it makes a bit of a noise for a while - even up to 10 minutes, and its kind of a ticking noise, kinda hard to describe what it is but yeah sounds like metal ticking/trickling, any ideas what it could be or is it normal?

i think it happens most of the time, but generally after a longer drive it happens, and lasts longer

They all do it, especially after a big or hard drive, just the metal.

Next time you use your grill under the oven and you're done cooking your cheese sandwiches listen for that exact same noise... tink tink tink
