Why would a car make a ticking noise when the accelerator is pushed?

Hey Teisha===If it sounds like the noise is in the engine it can be a loose spark plug or an ex manifold gasket leaking. It really has to be heard to be diagnoised. GoodluckJoe

I have a 2007 Nissan sentra and it did the same thing especially when pressing on accelerator. Had to replace my intake valve timing control solenoid bc of long oil changes.
