Tick...... Tick................. Tick

I have a tick right coming from the bottom of the engine/starter motor area after I turn the ignition off. Start her up, let her warm up, go for a spin (or just let her idle for a while) then when I turn her off I hear a tick, tick, tick from the very bottom the engine.... Right underneath,it's like the second hand ticking on a clock.

Anyone got any ideas of what it could be?

Thanks guys.

probably just exhaust or other engine parts cooling..

many cars used to (and still do) do the same thing after shutdown
