Sounds like the tapping you are hearing are the tapits need tightening, You may need to top the oil up it they are auto ajusting. Your best bet is to talke to your local mechanic and ask how easy it is to adjust the tapits, i'm not sure how much you will need to tighten them on your model of car. I hope this is of some help.

Ticking noise from engine

You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.

Ticking sound from engine compartment

From what you're saying, it sounds like the lifters are tapping, almost like a clicking if i'm correct. Go to Advance Auto Parts, and buy some Seafoam in a can, you can pour some directly into your oil, and the noise should sieze. Also pour some in your gas, it really helps the engine. If you ask the cashier, they will take you right to it.
