Help Bad Noises ?????

Hi Guys

My girl's GTV 2.0ltr is making a ticking noise on acceleration ,even if you put your foot down a little you get this faint ticking noise from under the bonnet ,its very faint but it seems to be getting louder.
the engine sounds fine on tick over its only when you apply the gas that you can here it ,not sure if we are being paranoid its just that my new fiat coupe blew its big ends last week and needs a new engine !!!

Could it be gearbox oil level ?

Thanx in advance .

Could well be, it is a bit noisey round the manifold.

Still sounds a bit more mechanical than exhaust leak tho

Could be the CV boots or joints, they may be loose or need replacing. They normally make a clicking sound.

Happens on quite a few manual cars. Mine has the same noise at the moment, especially when I put it in reverse and drive.
