Engine ticking

I have an abarth and when it's running in idle there is a ticking noise coming from the engine on the passengers side. If I rev the engine it gets faster.

Any idea what it could be? Seems to be ok when I'm on the move

Re: Engine ticking

Could it be normal sound of fuel injectors opening and closing?

Re: Engine ticking

I recently had a full service including timing belt and water pump.

Never noticed the sound before but I've checked oil levels and they are fine. The car also seems to be running ok with no power loss

Took a short video but not sure I can upload it on here?

I didn't know donkeys could develop noisy camshaft syndrome.

Re: Engine ticking

Could it be exhaust manifold, perhaps one bolt needs tightening
