IS IT NORMAL FOR ABS SELF TEST TO BE LOUD ON A ? WHEN IDLING, HEAR LIGHT REPETITIVE PING SOUND. HOW TO FIX THIS?

2008 Nissan Frontier • 69,700 miles

Just light pinging when sitting and engine idling. Very light but noticable. Also, abs self test clunk after the first shift a little unpleasant. Is this normal on these frontiers as so many have said?

Have it scanned for codes. Check for vacuum leaks. Check the plugs. The pinging could actually be preigntion.

Sound of self test varies with vehicles but it is generally louder than most think is reasonable. Have codes read see if any knock sensor dtc's in there? Try some premium gas?
