SOURCE: 2000 mustang 3.8 l motor makes rattling noise when driving

the 2000 ford Mustang has a factory defect. there is a missing Baffle in the Valve cover which is allowing oil to be sucked in to the combustion chamber through the PCV valve. the Fix is to install a filter or to install the new valve covers you will need to buy through your local ford dealer.

When you say the oil light stick was jumping, do you mean the actual dipstick under the hood? If so, there may be a blown sensor in the engine causing pressure to build - pushing the dipstick out.

When I accelerate up a hill there is a noise that sounds like it might be fuel injectors, its a 'ticking' type noise, you only hear it when accelerating up a hill.


This noise is called pinging (preignition) this can be cause by carbon build up on pistons and valves or EGR SYSTEM NOT OPERATING CORRECTLY . and last low octane gas or engine running hotter than normal,

It sounds like it does this while under a load, like going uphills, i would have the egr system checked, being a 2000 escort i would think the computer would pickup on the egr system not working and turn engine light on. This could also be caused by bad o2 sensors setting fuel mixture at a lean condition. good day

Motor makes a pecking sound at 2000 rpm only under a load.does not do it while reving parked


Noise out of the engine. Noisy valves? Low oil level? Is the sound like tick, tick, tick, tick......that's how bad valves sound. I don't know if you have solid lifters those have to be adjusted after some mileage. Hydraulic ones are self adjusting. Only a good mechanic can tell for sure.
