When its doing it, get under the car and try to locate it. The ting ting ting could be the heat shield vibrating when warm. Get back to us.

it sounds like itscomming from the top side of the motor on the tranny side. if you rev it up a few ties its gone again ? Sounds like a metal ticking like filcking a screwdriver against tin but it skips a beat too ??

You may find a loose exhaust heat shield ... that'* my first guess.

Not much info to go on.
