Engine sounds aren't always easy to diagnose even when you're standing next to it, trying to do it from long distance as in a forum like this is a lot tougher. It sounds like two issues, possibly related, but maybe not. Did you buy the car new? Has it used a significant amount of oil from the very beginning or did it start about the same time as the tick? How many miles on it now? If you bought it used do you know anything about how it was used and maintained by the previous owner[s]? I was fortunate enough to have bought mine new so I was able control the break in process and subsequent maintenance as well as how it is driven [ fairly hard, but not abusive ]. I have just under 41,000 miles on mine and the only measurable oil consumption is a few tablespoons from the catch can between 4,500 mile oil changes with 5w30 Mobil 1 full synthetic. I sometimes have a slight tick when restarting the car if I have only let it run for a couple of minutes before the restart, but it goes away quickly. A damp or wet serpentine belt can make a noticeable noise and the injectors can be louder than you might expect. Put a mechanics stethoscope on the fuel line with the engine running and you'll really hear them. Good luck and let us know what you find.
