it shouldnt make any noise as far as i know.

is the noise audible even with the bonnet closed, or only when its open?

with the bonnet open its normal to hear a ticking noise which is the injectors opening and closing. but you shouldnt hear that when you close the bonnet.

other than that, maybe it's a valve? or an exhaust manifold leak?

Sorry, couldn't resist temptation

Can't help you there, but normally it is around 60k to 90k (though my current focus needs it's v-belt replaced at 150k).
