Question 1993 Dodge Intrepid Has A Ticking Nosie

I have a 93 dodge intrepid that just today started a ticking nosie coming home ... Sounds like its comming from the top of the engine on the drivers side ... The car is has always been garage kept and seriviced regulary since new . It has a 3.3 engine with an automatic transmission with 62000 miles. Last oil change was done in july,may-be 300 miles ago... Oil is clean, doesn't smell burnt or thin and is at the full mark on the stick ... What could this ticking be and is it a big job to repaire it? The nosie gets faster with higher RPM's but not louder...

Add a quart of Marvel Mystery Oil or Rislone to the crankcase
The noise may go away or quiet down, which will tell you it's not mechanical, but rather build up of "crud" on the valvetrain
