Got a tick.

Get a new motor......

They call it the infamous Toyota tick...., essentially because our engines use a solid bucket that isn't shim-able after a while a tick will develop that you can do nothing about.... :thumbdown:

It's highly unlikely that you have an actual "tick". All tacos have it, most of it comes from that little valve on the driver side of the intake manifold, it has a vacuum hose and a wire harness on it. If you unplug it while the truck is running, most of the tick noise goes away. Don't leave it unplugged but you may want to try it to see if this is where your noise is coming from.
