Ticking could be exhaust gas leak or lifter noise. You could try changing the oil or adding an engine cleaning agent to the oil in case it is a stuck lifter. Other wise start looking and listening to your exhaust manifold. If the is happening with a load versus just sitting still I would think it is pre-ignition ping if that were the case gumout fuel system cleaner and or higher octane gas.

If it turns out to be ticking lifter add some Lucas Engine Oil Stablizer to oil after removing same amount of oil from vehicle as on the bottle of Lucas.
