Ticking injectors ?

i have a light ticking sound that comes and goes from the top end of the engine, doesn't sound mechanical and stops briefly when you idle the engine then starts again as you pull off . Someone said it may be the injectors ? do they have a tendency to tick and if so does it mean they are loose/blocked or ****ed . The car runs fine just this annoying tick every now and again ..

Injectors can be header more on direct injection petrol engines, doesn't sound to be the cause here, they don't work with such a high pressure to be ticking on indirect injection.

Isn't the sound coming more from the wing? can be fuel vapor recirculation solenoid... Just annoying, no real problem
