At idle, the car makes all sorts of noises as Im sure all normal vehicles do... there is a slight ticking noise Im sure... but its not what the videos suggest (Random ; No rhythm)..

I am out of warranty... Should I be concerned?
I had the same concerns after the spark plug change hence the reason behind reviving the thread. But the ticking noise I heard have since disappeared and from the feedback from members who have listened to the YouTube video, all is well and healthy. Back to sleeping well again.
