WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF THIS SOUND?

2004 Subaru Impreza • 140,000 miles

When idling, my car gives off a slight but noticeable clicking/ticking sound from the engine bay. I can't tell if this is simply a sound that the car just makes, or if this is the precursor to a potential issue.

Could be the injectors, could be a valve lifter from low oil or excessive wear. Get it checked by a shop.

Thanks, I'll have it checked this week.
