Sometimes a ticking sound is a valve lifter. The faster you go the faster the ticking will be.

Make sure first it is not something stuck in a tire or something on the fan belt.

Why did they stop making the Pontiac Sunfire in 2005?

Good question! But, the Sunfire had a run of nearly 10 years. Zillions of them were sold and were/are still quite dependable, but the time comes with all car models when it's time to update. Newer technologies need to be put into place. The styling has become dated and customers no longer find the car attractive or competitive. I guess quitting on a high note is the best thing. Sadly, Pontiac is going the way of Oldsmobile. There will be no more. Those of us who own and love our "Ponchos" will have to take very good care of all of them if we expect to see them on the road in the years to come. RIP Pontiac ~

Your manual 2003 v6 Hyundai tiberon has a ticking in the back of the engine what would cause it?

Its possible that this ticking sound is caused from driving fast for prolong periods. Its possible that its not the engine that is making the sound, but the exhaust system somewhere. I hear a ticking sound if I drive over 140KMh for long periods. It always stops once the car cools. I hopes this helps.
