I changed my oil filter last weekend around 1600 miles or so (planning on a complete oil change between 2000-2500 miles). While having the hood raised to check for leaks around the oil cap is when I first noticed the ticking.
There is a sound file attachment prior on this forum. Does your ticking noise sounds anything like it?
