Hey guys,

since yesterday I have this ticking noise in my enginebay. The engine is completely stock and has 40k miles on it. It's only if the car is warm and around 1800rpm. I really can't locate where it's coming from.
I changed my oil for about 3000 miles (but it's around 1 year old) and it's filled up. I also have new ignition wires and new spark plugs. First I thought it could be a bad lifter, or a chain timing problem, but should it not be if the engine is cold too? Or maybe can it be a bearing at the alternator?

Here's the video:

check to make sure your spark plugs are all connected tight on both ends and look to see if your header bolts are coming out. Had to give mine a couple of turns 2 weeks ago to get rid of my clicking/exhaust leak.
