Welcome to JustAnswer!!!
My name is ***** ***** I'm a 16 yr Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep dealership technician that will be helping you today. NOTE: The deposit you placed will not credit me unless you rate me positive, and feel free to reply to me as many times as needed even after the rating.
Is it a single ticking, like 1 cylinder or does it sound like more than one? Which side of the engine is it coming from? Have you removed the valve cover to inspect for damages?
