hi guys i just noticed a ticking sound coming from the passenger side of the engine with the hood up. It is not noticable while driving and only really shows up when the engine is hot. Its not loud but is annoying, no idea what it is, i have been reading on here but cant seem to match it. seems to mimic the exhaust note if that makes sense, anyways any advice sure would help, thanks again

If it changes with exhaust, that would probably mean an exhaust leak at the manifold.

3rd it.

Same issue, when I tromped on the gas and the engine was at hot I could hear it. Turned out to be a small crack on the exhaust manifold flange to the tail pipe. Pulled it and had it welded.
