i have a tick in my engine?

I have a 02 jetta gls and there's a tick in the engine. It gets faster when I accelerate. My check engine light has been on for about 3 months too and I've taken it to two different places and both said there isn't anything wrong with it. Im really trying to avoid taking it to VW and paying 1000. But anyways the car just went over 50000 miles and it doesn't drive funny. It just has that tick. Just wondering what possibilities could be for problems.

    Assuming you have good oil & filter, you may have a "sticking" valve; Put in a pint of STP oil treatment, and run it about 50 miles (hi-way speed).

    Don't worry, the hot oil will kill him soon enough.
