P0130: O2 sensor code
p1290: Engine Coolant Temperature code
p0171: Fuel Trim code
These codes "might" not be related to the ticking.
Most common ticking sounds are:
- hydraulic lifters - due to low oil pressure
- chain tensioner (1.8T) - worn out or due to low oil pressure
- VR6 chain rattle - broken chain guides
You need to have a professional listen to your engine to make sure
that it is not something serious.
You can deal with the codes at a later time.
