Default What is this ticking noise?

I have recently noticed a loud ticking coming from the engine bay. I have slps so I only really notice it at idol..just wondering what it is and if I should be worried.

You sure you dont have any bugs under the hood? You should hammer them out

Ticking can be a number of things. Yes, it can be the injectors, but it can also be an exhaust leak (break in the gasket somewhere, hole in the exhaust manifold, exhaust pipe just under the manifold), or it could be bad lash adjusters.
