I have a 1965 Buick riviera that makes a clicking noise and sounds like it is coming from the passengers side rear. When i fill the tank it goes away. Could anyone tell me what they think it is.

If your car has a/c and the fuel filter with a return line, you have the return line click. If you search through the threads on this forum, you'll find more information about it. I have owned my 65 for 12 years, and it has always had the click.

For future reference, it's called the "Riviera rattle." And it's well documented. :)

Ed, my car does not do this, nor did my Dad's 65 he bought new ever have this "documented" rattle.

Sounds like I've been missing out on all the fun. Both are A/C cars with the return line.

Not all of them rattle, but when you hear a rattle, that's probably a good place to start. By documented, I meant that it has come up more that once over the past. Perhaps one of the most often asked questions in a bygone era. When these cars were being driven "as is" 20 - 25 years ago before repairs and restorations, it was common to this complaint.
