OK, here is a mechanics secret that must be maintained in strict confidence... get a 3ft lenght of garden hose or a stick like half a billard q stick or similar sturdy stick. Now put against where you think the noise is coming from and put the stick or hose to you ear while holding it against the source. Move the stethescope around until you locate the source of the sound, then you can fix the suspected culprit. Many times a stuck valve lifter will be the culprit of such elusive ticking and this can be cured with some crankcase oil adative when you change the oil and it will like likely help.
good luck

Sounds like a bad starter possibly getting non functional with heated up condition.

The solution is to change the starter with a new one, hopefully lifetime warranted if that's available.

What causes the automatic chock to stay on too long on a 1988 ford crown victoria


They have a spring inside the housing which when the coolant warms the spring releases slowly until the choke comes off, but if that spring has weakened over time it will not be as efficient as it used to be, so if you can get a replacement maybe that would help

1999 FORD CROWN VIC. 4.6 - PROBLEM, NOISE


This is caused by the IAC valve. Over time the valve becomes gummy and inoperative. Get it replaced and the problem is solved. IAC stands for idle air control, hence the stalling concern.

Mine did that same thing. I ended up having to buy a carb cleaning kit, and take the carburator apart and clean it out and rebuild it. It was really dirty inside it and since I did that I have had no problems!

If it was an old police vehicle it has probably got an ignition kill switch located somewhere. This will have to be removed. And the wiring put back to factory standards. If not an old police car you are not getting voltage to the starter which is a bad relay. Do you get a clicking sound when you try to start? If yes, have someone keep hitting the start and listen and look for a relay under the hood.
