Re: Ticking noise-still
I would expect a bad rocker arm to exhibit the same symptoms as a bad lifter, since they are links in the same chain - opening the valves. A compression test should identify any valvetrain problems.
BTW The fuel rail can emit loud ticking as a result of the injectors operating. Put your finger on it and see if that's the source.
