What's causing my 2015 Chrysler 200 engine ticking noise?

I’m at a loss. My 2015 Chrysler 200 makes this weird ticking noise when I’m idling and driving. I’ve looked under the hood and I can still hear the tick, but I can’t pinpoint where it’s coming from. What might cause an engine ticking noise in a Chrysler 200?

Ticking noises in a 2015 Chrysler 200 are probably the result of a bad lifter within the engine. Lifters help the valves open within the engine system, and if the valves don’t open all the way, they’ll make a ticking noise.
Bad lifters aren’t easy to fix due to the labor it takes to reach them — the repair costs about $1,000 to $2,500 depending on the severity of the issue. With such a sizable repair bill, entrusting a mechanic is the best option.
