could be the plugs but ticking is usually caused by the valve(s) could just be a sticky lifter, which is the most common cause. but if you think it could be the plugs change them out and see what happens might just need a vale adjustment/tune up

you may have bad spark plug wire and the ticking may be the wire arcking.
