    I get the same with my 1.6L 16v

    tends to do it alot from cold,but onces its warmed up it settles down a bit. Would be interested to find out the exact cause of it though.

    I had this in my 1.6 8v and i got the oil changed and it went away. I also remember reading a whlie back about some valve that made a ticking noise behind the air box, *scratches head*

    My 2002 1.6 16v sxi is the same just under 80k on the clock. Ticks when cold but not noticable once it has warmed up
    2002 1.6 16v SXi Completely Standard (I Think)

    Could be a leaky gasket or manifold hole. Might be lifters (tappets), but these seem fairly bullet proof. Mine was ticking like this and it ended up being a pinhole in the inlet manifold just where the EGR valve mounts.
