is this ticking indicative of manifold issues?

Im worried about this high paced ticking.... i know ticks can be indicative of manifold issues, but this seems to be coming more from the spark plugs than the lower half of the engine where the manifold is. From the drivers seat on the road i feel like i hear an exhaust leak type breathy rattle, but i just had the exhaust replaced (for this exact reason).

Let me know what ya think. I'm drving to texas from alabama soon, and dont want to do unnecessary damage or worse, be stranded!

Re: is this ticking indicative of manifold issues?

If you have a loose spark plug you can get a tick/squeak/whistle. BTST before.
