Is it like a click? It could be the fuel injectors normal sound. Check if it is coming directly behind the valve cover.

You could just be low on oil and/or overdue for an oil change. What's the level & condition of your oil?

its also possible that you have an exhaust leak, maybe the gasket where the manifold meets the head...this can also give you somewhat of a tap, tap, tap sound. Its kind of tough to tell without hearing it in person
