Customer Question
I have 2014 Kia...

I have 2014 Kia Optima

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Optima yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just got home put car in garage and there is ticking noise coming from the back end of the car...it has been going on for several minutes

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Just noticed it a few minutes ago and sounds like it is coming from the passenger rear of the car...below the trunk

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It has now been ticking for a least 5 to 10 minutes
