Dealer is totally lying to you if a vehicle has a tap or ticking noise something is wrong.

When was the last time you had the oil changed ? Also check oil level maybe low on oil.

Kinda of vague.. "ticking" but engines are normally smooth and quiet in modern well designed vehicles. Honda does have a design issue, The 3.5-liter V6 engines installed in various Honda's can make a knocking or ticking noise at idle and only when warm. The cause of the problem is the rocker shaft bridge has EXCESSIVE clearance from the factory, which causes the rocker shaft to rotate and make noise. Loosen and re-torque the rocker shaft bridge bolts to quiet them down.
