My neighbor had this experiace with her car and when he asked about this to a mechanic of Tiremania Auto Repair Shop he said to do some basic things as
Checking the engine oil level, as engine function depends upon the cleanness of oil to lubricate the internal moving parts. Incase the oil level is dirty or low it can cause internal engine parts to malfunction. For example: a valve lifter is responsible for holding valve train clearance to a minimum, if the oil level is low or dirty it can cause the lifter to fail which will allow excess valve train clearance creating engine tapping or clicking noise. I think it will better for show it to mechanic.
