    I might have a lifter problem?

    I don't know how long this been going on for but I just noticed tonight on my way home.
    First thing I notice is that my car has just randomly backfires usually when I am slowing down. Then I noticed a slight vibration while im driving. I want to say it felt like a mis-fire. There was also a slight ticking, when I parked an inspected it, I popped the hood and it sounded like it was coming from the header area. The sound also carries through out the exhaust cause you can also hear it pretty clear from the sides right where it dumps off.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks guys

    Oh yea, I don't think it should matter but I am within 10 miles of breaking in (500 miles) on a new clutch.

    A ripped exhaust gasket causing an exhaust leak will cause a ticking sound as well.

    What kind of mods do you have? mileage etc. Have you had the car since it was new? What about the oil change history?
