I've seen TOD referanced in other posts and threads... saddly, I'm not getting the definition from the context. Enlighten me, please?

Tick Of Death.
Affectionate name for a crappy problem.

When an EA82 is ticking like time bomb and sounds like its going to explode. Its rarely harmful, just very annoying

Typically it means leaking seals, dirty lifters, or poor pressure - or a combination of these.

most of the time it's noisy HLA's, Hydraulic Valve Lash Adjusters. like GD said if it's due to HLA's you can run the car indefinitely like that, it's benign minus the fact that it's annoying.
fix depends on the cause - either the HLA's themselves are dirty (in which case MMO may work/help) or more often the oil pump needs resealed or replaced because it won't hold the engine to block gasket properly in place and it sucks air. air is compressible and HLA's aren't meant to work with that.
