Ticking noise from coils?
 
I changed my vcg yesterday and before I put everything back on like the plastic covers I was checking to make sure that the oil leak was fixed. I started the car and took it for a drive and when I got back I did a visual. Everything looked fine but I noticed a ticking sound coming from the coils. I thought it was just the front one but the sound was coming from each spark plug. I took a hose and listened closer and each 1 was making the noise. Car runs fine except for the ticking. I waited till dark to check if I could see any type of sparking that was coming off but nothing. Any suggestions?

you're supposed to let the RTV sealant cure for an hour (I've also heard 12)

Also check the torque on your spark plugs and make sure the coils are fully seated.

Sounds like a plug has loosened and backed out.
