Engine ticking ? What is it?

My 2.5 motor has a tick when it runs, Sounds like lifters ticking? is this normal ? Can someone tell me what to start looking at? I dont think it has had much attention for maintainence with previous owners. Thanks Brandi

Is it just not the fuel injectors ticking?

Change the oil and filter..... use a good 10w 40 fully synthetic and see if noises become quiter or disappear...My advice is not to use 5w as it is to 'thin' if the noises do become quiet or disappear then it is just camshaft followers or lifter noises probably?
