Default Ticking/clanking

Ok so my friend has a 99 civic like mine and whenever he going slow or even on the brake at a stop light there is a ticking or clanking sound coming from his engine. What could it be? When he hits the gas when he is going slow and hits the gas it does it to. I don't know what it is.

what octane and quality gas is he running? and what type of mileage is on the car? it could also be the heat shield vibrating from a broken bolt or something of the sort.
