tick after engine off

I am hearing a slow ticking noise after I shut off my engine... It sounds kind of like a slow drip drip drip on metal but I dont see anything leaking anywhere? Sounds like it is coming from near the header.

2000 honda prelude

Maybe normal noise engine cooling down I dunno this is my first car..

Are you sure it's not the heat expanded metal contracting?

Re: tick after engine off

Yeah I havent really noticed any other issues... I just heard that noise for the first time after getting out of my car turning off the engine and then taking a look under the hood... sounds like its nothing to worry about, thanks!

another quick question

how hard is it to do timing belt and water pump?
will I require a shop?
I have a friend who is pretty knowledgeable about cars and has a decent amount of tools but it sounds like i may have to just take it into a shop to get the timing belt and water pump replaced as it is hard to access?

I am at 90,000 miles just did oil and filter and spark plugs and wires...brakes are good but I know its due for the timing belt... anything else I should do at this point?

Thanks in advance!

I've been told with H22's you have to take the engine out to replace timing belt, and you cant just access from reaching into engine bay. So best advice would be to take it to a shop.
