well there needs to be more specific details given about the tick. where on the car can you hear it? front middle rear? do you hear it under load or onlly at idle? the tunnel the only place or can you do something to the car to make it make that noise also? please give specifics to what you and/or the car are doing when you hear this sound. also, is it rythmic? or random? also does it sound like metal on metal? high pitched, low pitch, more of a dull tick?
my guess is that its a exhaust tick. either at the manifold or the first coupling. i have had this on a couple cars, and just got mine fixed when i got my new tranny installed, because they had to drop my mid pipe, and when i got it back, voila no more exhaust tick.
