start with the basics: asumme you checked the oil level. are you sure the sound goes away with higher rpm and isn't just drowned out with other noises? have you tried to identify where the ticking is from? one side of the motor? front/back? need more info to be more helpful to you.

Mine ticks as well...I narrowed it down to loud injectors or plugs.

Does the ticking speed increase as you increase rpm's?

With the car idling, you can take a screw driver, put the tip on an injector, etc and put your ear up to the handle to narrow down the ticking.

I'm pretty sure the ticking is a rather common 'problem' with the 2v's and it doesn't really effect anything, but you never know.

Could be an exhaust leak, I've had them that kind of disappear or turn into a drone at certain RPM's. But from what I hear these motors have ticks to them as well.
