A few more details would be great! :)

Does it do it on idle or in revs as well ? Does it do it when cold or hot or both ?

It does it from the moment the engine is turned on till the moment its turned off including hot and cold even whilst driving its a constant rattle/ticking

Is there a burble at the exhaust ? If so it's probably a misfire. Easially rectified by a new set of spark plugs!

Ive replaced the spark plugs with 4 brand new ones But the sound still persists :(

Do you think the tapets might need adjusting?
