    The auto shop tells me it's definitly in the engine. The noise is high pitched and sometimes like a squeal and sometimes more of a tapping.

2003 Ford Ranger ticking noise, not a ping or knock. It is coming from the engine.


THE ticking noise coming from the engine ..is it just a 1 tick on idle at about each rev of engine,,and does it make any differance to the running of engine ,,Does it get softer when it gets warmer.
As it sounds like a loose tappet and being a oil adjusted tappets this thought of thing does come in now and again. and the best thing to do is to get a small plastic tube 25mm (or 1' ) and 2ft long and put it to your ear and listen at the top of the rocker cover ans see if the noise gets louder in a certen place ,as you will hear it if it is there..
Other wise it could be a Small end on the conrod which the piston is connected to.... lets hope not.
So let me know as soon as poss the answers to all the above. Ron

2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain


Hello;
The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.
Thanks;
