Hey guys, new member but I’ve only ever owned commodores. My latest is a s1 ve sv6. I changed the spark plugs and put it all back together, with double checking everything is good and run it and have this noise. Wondering if somebody can please tell me what this is and if it is supposed to be ticking? Thanks!

It's a purge valve. Draws fuel vapour from the tank and sends it back to the intake to be burnt.
It's not uncommon for it to tick

You can remove it and if you can blow through it both ways, it's faulty

Thanks! Just found the thread titled “
Ve alloytec evap purge valve solenoid”. Helped heaps turns out it’s not hugely critical.
