engine ticking, no one has helped

Hi, this is my first post here, and I'm looking for some help. First, I know next to nothing about cars, but no one has been able to discover the problem so far, so if I can find the right direction...

My 1995 V6 engine makes a ticking noise. It gets faster as you press the accelerator, and eventually, after you drive it a while, it doesn't do it as loud. It doesn't do it unless you press the accelerator. If you press the gas super slow, it doesn't do it, at least not loud enonugh to hear easily.

No repair shop can tell me what it is. I've had the lifters replaced, its not the exhaust, new head new plugs, new plug wires, new radiator, new air intake and air intake sensor. I'm told "if it hasn't broken by now, it's no big deal", and "turn your radio up so you don't hear it". I'm told it could be a flat place in the "crank", but it doesn't do it all the time. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks.

hey

okay well i am no mechanic and i probably know as much about cars as you, though i am in the process of learning, but i think i had the same problem with my mustang when i first got it. I have a 2000 mustang and everytime i turned on the engine a whistle sound would come out from under the hood, which then turned into a chirping sound...very annoying. Anyways, I realized that it was the type of gasoline that i was using. Might sound stupid but after i went a grade up the sound stopped. So maybe you should try that. I've recently had to go back down a grade cuz of the dam gas prices and thankfully that noise hasnt come back.

Hope thats the solution to the ticking sound in your car, let me know how it goes.

Daniel

It's probably the exhaust manifold. There's a hot spot at the rear of the drivers side, that'll leak.

On some cars, it's under a silent recall. Depending on miles/year.

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.

I had the same problem before and after I had a new engine put into my 96 mustang v6 engine. The mechanic disconnected a sensor that is for the emmisions system to filter the gas fumes instead of the fumes going into the carborator. Anyway, once he disconnected it, the ticking stopped. It only ticked when I accelerated too. Then the check engine light went on and I had it scanned which gave me a code of P1446, which is definitely the problem and related to the emmisions system. I was told that I should replace the sensor and the selenoid. Hope this helps you out. Cindy
