Car Ticks At Idle

Well title explains for itself. When my car is at idle it ticks. It only happens when my car is warmed up. Yes I do accelerate hard on my car sometimes. Idk weather that would be the problem. I've recently got an oil change 2 months ago. Checked it out and coloration and level was topped off. Any suggestions? It's just really annoying

Check passenger side exhaust manifold. They tend to crack on that side. Also, once the car warms up it tends to tick more. So you can always start there.

My ticking was a blown engine...it got louder & louder & eventually died on me. Hopefully not your problem!

If you don't mind me asking, what was the cause?

Unfortunately I bought the car with a blown cylinder. Had it two weeks and it died.

Lol I'd be so pissed if that's the case but I don't think so. It just ticks when it wants to at idle. It's just very annoying when your an enclosed area and all you hear is that noise! But I'll give it a look
