Someone might confirm but it sounds like it could be an issue with the lifters, best bet would be to go and drop into your mechanic as if it is and a lifter breaks it can be very serious.

My '09 FG XT makes a ticking noise when cold and warm, sounds like it's coming from the belt..

My mechanic said it was nothing but it's still pretty annoying.

Here is a video I posted a while: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMKFygzQ4Qc

Is this the same as your car tomofgxr6?
