It sounds like what you are describing is an exhaust manifold leak. Your exhaust manifold is bolted to the cylinder head and is sealed with an exhaust manifold gasket that sits in between the manifold and the cylinder head. When this gasket leaks or is damaged, you may hear a hissing or ticking sound depending on the severity of the leak. This can also happen when the bolts or nuts that hold the manifold on are missing or loose. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and repair your exhaust manifold.
