Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
This is a major problem waiting to happen. An internal component is not working properly whether its a rocker arm or the piston rings, the piston itself or the main bearing would cause this. If the mileage is not really high then I would suspect the ticking to be loose or damaged piston rings, which would be the cheapest for you to replace. I would suggest filling the gas tank up with highest octane fuel you can get and put in some cleaning additives to see if they fix the problem. Components could just be sticking or dirty.
Good luck to you
