There is a ticking when accelerating in my SUV. The dealer tells me this ticking is normal, but it keeps getting louder. How dangerous is this situation?

Clicking sound when car first starts. Goes away after car heats up. Told the Manifold seal was bad, $3,500 to fix. Nothing done yet.

my mechanic has told me that since my manifold has cracked that my 02 sensor is bad and my cadillac converters have failed.
I didnt know at first, but after numerous trips to the repair ship and $1,000's in dollars spent on oxygen sensors, etc....someone finally explained to me it was a leaky exhaust manifold...and it would be 2-$3,000 to fix. the kicker is that with that issue causing the ck engine light to come on, it triggers the car to shut off the VSC system, causing those two lights to show up. ive been drivinf it like this for 100,000 miles...but I refuae to get someth I ng fixed that should be a recall item. not sure abt buying toyota again....

Sounds like a woodpecker is in my engine when I accelerate. Only does it first thing in the morning. Repair quoted at more than $2000. I am deciding whether or not to proceed with the repair.

Ticking noise when the car first starts and disappears when it heats up. Sometimes there's an exhaust smell too in the car.
