What kind of ticking mate ?? I have just bought a 3.0 GTV myself and found i have some kind of ticking - but im sure its more of a rattle, since if i depress my clutch just slightly - it goes !
Strange not to have any reply here, i wish i could offer more info but i am absolutely crap with mechanics !! I just drive...
If you have owned the car a long time and its just appear, could be OK - since you probably check your oil level regular ?? One post i did see somewhere was that it could be tappets - but thats usually dependant on what GTV you have i.e. phase 1, 2 or 3 ?
Cant see your pic awfully well but looks like a 99' T reg ?? Which if it has the 6 speed box, will be the phase 2 i believe. Which if correct should be hydraulic tappets and they should not be a problem. Check your spark plugs - sounds silly but they can come loose and cause such ticking.
Hope iv been of some help, dont take my word too seriously though, im going off memory of posts iv read in the past !! Could really do with someone who knows their stuff giving some advice !
