20W-50 is good for muffling sounds in the motor. Depending on the loudness the ticking could be caused by Exhaust gaskets (o-rings) from the head to the head pipe(ticking sound ((at idle))and popping or backfiring on deceleration). When automatic cam chain adjusters are going bad you get a clicking sound, or worse, hydraulic valve lifters (for zero tolerance) going bad. Lifters tend to be a loud clacking sound.
