If it is a tappet noise, it is caused by sludge in the lifters. "Rislone" added to the oil will usually clean and clear that up in a few hundred miles

Need to know what causes this noise.

Hi its a common problem for these model legacys to tick due to the tappits, if it never used to do it then there is prob no damage to them, only dirt stuck under them so some good oil and some engine flush should help, or else try some anti tappit noise treatment in the oil your using now and it may also help

My 2002 Range Rover makes a loud ticking noise when I start it and when I accellerate or stop it gets louder its not over heating and not loosing any power.. what should I get fixed?

Could be your lifters are loose(Tappits) have a mechanic tighten them down for you, but they have to be at proper tork , If the ticking noise is really loud you also could have a broken connecting arm on one of your pistons, that is very bad, some vehicles can be driven for awhile with that noise, but if it is that your motor is done!
