There are a lot of things that tick on these cars, injectors seem to be the most common. It's annoying if you focus on it, but it is completely normal and as far as I know there is no fix for that, it's simply the nature of the beast. Could even be something else harmless like an exhaust leak. Hard to tell without a lot more info/detail, or even better, a video demonstrating it. For example is it audible only with the hood up and standing outside the car? Can you hear it inside the car with the hood/doors and windows closed? Lots of things need to be shared to help but I'm sure we can get it sorted out
