Does it sound likes its coming from the engine or teh exhaust? What part of the engine?

Check the oil level. Could be low. When was last time oil changed?

Sound change with temperature with engine? I.E louder when warm or louder when cold?

It sounds like it comes from under me, like the exhaust. Doesnt seem like its in up front by the engine. But I am not sure about that. I did put a quart and a half of oil in and its full now but still clicks. Does need an oil change. I dont drive her too much so its not over the 3000 too much, but 3-4 months past the date it needed to be changed. Also seems to click the same when engine just started or runs for a bit. If anything maybe a bit louder after running. Could it be as simple as an oil change? Also read maybe a bad gasket in the exhaust manafold? Ive stopped driving her since the sound started so im not exactly sure what its doing. Appreciate and advice I can get. Thanks

Could be a oiil change needed. Try thicker oil.

If not I would suspect exhaust leak. If it was the gasket for the manifold it would be coming from the front of the engine and chances are the noise would quiet after driving as the metal woudl heat up and expand and close off the leak.
