ticking around throttle area

I noticed my car started ticking. And also when I accelerate, from under the car, it sounds like loose. Bolts. Ticking. Anybody have any idea?

Does a cracked manifold throw out codes. Or is it just a self diagnosis?

The way I found my cracked manifold was using seafoam lol se people will say stay Away from it, but it's basically like a smoke test plus cleaning, if its cracked you'll see smoke coming from it

Thats funny.

If its a cracked manifold its a cracked manifold has nothing to do with a/c dripping, now if its a ticking noise and the a/c caused the exhaust to crack thats called an exhaust leak. The a/c does not drip over the headers.
