I have seen older 94-98 V6s that had faint valve ticking, a few that didnt and some with valves that ticked badly. Is this common for these cars? Is it something I shold worry about then?
It's probably an exhaust leak, there's a voluntary recall on the drivers side exhaust manifold.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
