    check bolts on manifold - also check for holes

    you should be able to feel it blowing if there is a gap - i had this about a week ago.

    Check the block for a hole about 15cmx15cm, you may find a missing piston and conrod... I've heard this can cause a slight ticking

    Seriously tho, check the manifold for leaks and make sure there's oil in the car!

    I agree, try an oil change before you start to get too worried
