Default question about 3.2TL car jack

I had to change a tire and the car jack that came with my 2003 3.2tl seemed
to operate somewhat awkwardly making loud clicking noises at odd intervals
when I was using it to raise the car. I definitely put the jack under the
reinforced area. The loud clicking noises were coming from the jack itself.
I don't recall these types of jacks as being noisy in operation, so I want
to make sure nothing is defective.

Is it normal for the kind of car jack included with the 2003 Acura 3.2 TL to
make loud clicking noises when raising the car? (The clicking noises seemed
to happen at odd intervals in time)

Thanks,

J.

You're probably holding the crank handle on a sharp enough angle to make
the cross-pin click against its recess.

That may be what was happening. I'll try testing it out again.

Thanks,
