Here is a list of things that could cause a ticking in the car. It's hard to diagnose unless you can hear the noise, but here goes. 1. Valve 2. Valve Lifter 3. Rocker arm (if worn) 4. Oil pump drive gear 5. Engine oil low Hope that helps!

o.k so you also said that it's hard to diagnose unless i can hear the noise,well i can also hear the noise and it is very annoying.please respond with any other answer.
