93 GC has a ticking sound

well i know that this isnt good, but not sure if it is bad to the point of a new engine. i can hear a ticking noise when i am driving my car, higher rpms the faster it gets, then when i shut off my car it is still ticking. for a few minutes afterwards. is this a valve or piston making this noise and if so does it need a rebuild or can i replace the valves. any info would help. oh and it has 178000 miles on the original engine. thanks for the help

If you shut your JEEP off and its still ticking then its nothing in the motor.I would start checking around under the hood if you can here it with the engine off to help pin point where the noise is.
