Clicking noise

K scared this may be a valve tick or head gasket issue. My jeep now ticks or a clicking noise when I pick up speed in first or second, I checked the belts they are fine.also the front end nothing seems to be out of place, And when I am at speed on highway no noise she sounds fine. Any thoughts ??

If it's only during acceleration that you notice the ticking, it's likely an exhaust manifold crack or exhaust leak of some sort. If you noticed the noise all the time or for a short interval during warm up then it could more likely be valvetrain noise.

Ok after doing some needed research I have noticed it could be a filter,lifter,valve train, wrong gas or wrong oil... Out of all Those I will be stupid here and ask what in the heck is a lifter ? Since I have over 100k I may need a new hydraulic lifter???
