What is the cause of this sound?

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.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes

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