Question: Ticking Sound when running and off

i hear a clicking or popping sound from under the vehicle. its not the normal sounds you hear after a vehicle shuts down. it actually can be heard when running. it continues for several minutes and is kind of loud. Some have said it may be water dripping, but sounds like a metal type popping. i think its coming from under rear doors or middle of vehicle
