what might be causing this ticking?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icSD...e_gdata_player

2000 2.5l manual TJ se. This has been happening for the last week or so. Some times it goes away when I keep a constant speed, but when I stop, it comes back. It gets faster with rpm's too. The belt looks to be tight and in good shape, no cracks. Also, temperature does not play a factor, it happens whether its 60* or 10*.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

a loose spark plug can tick, so can an injector not seated all the way but it would miss. Check your plugs. An exhaust leak ticks as well. Good luck

Sorry, should have watched video first. I'd say it's a bad idler pully. They're cheap.

Check the exhaust manifold studs. Common for them to snap off and make a very light gap (and tick). Also check vacuum lines- can't remember if there's one on the intake manifold on that engine.
