Pay for my plane ticket and I will be there :tard:

Where is the sound coming from? What does it sound like? Any videos?

Does it sound like it's ticking? Maybe it's time for you to have a valve adjustment done.

how many miles are on your car? things to check out/replace might be:

-serpentine belt
-spark plugs
-valve adjustment
-use a fuel cleaning product like chevron techron before you switch out your spark plugs

In addition to checking the areas mentioned above, take note that the TSX does not idle quietly and very smoothly to start off with. The timing chain plays a part in that and don't forget you're getting 200hp out of a NA DOHC 4 cylinder.

However if you remember it being much quieter then it is possible you need a valve adjustment or timing chain inspection done.
