engine valve ticking

is the engine valve ticking problem that seems to be so common on the 2.0 engines a serious problem? mine has been doing it for a while now, do you think i need to get it fixed right away, or is it not that serious? i've heard different things from different people. thanks.

I hear its your oil pump not performing right. But when mine do that I just add half a quart to top it off, and its fixes it, I hate that sound personally, I want my engine to sound like a sewing machine when its idle. Or you can add half a quart of 10-w40 the thicker oil when you get an oil change, and it doesn't tick.
