SOURCE: persistant ticking loudest under the engine

Loose tappets normally. They sit in the cylinder head on the rockers between the camshaft push-rods and the valves and are adjusted to bring the gap between the rocker and the valve to the manufacturers spec. Too much gap and the valves do not open properly, restricting fuel intake / exhaust gas purging. Too little gap and the valves will not close properly and can burn out. Mechanical tappets can be adjusted, hydraulic ones are eventually changed if the tapping gets too bad. There is a third type called bucket and shim but quite rare these days an the adjustment is complicated. Less likely is a sticking valve; a condition where, for a number of reasons, a valve does not close properly leaving a big gap between the rocker and the valve with consequent ticking and normally a loss of power.

SOURCE: ticking in motor, then stops for about a month,

It wont rev past 3500 in driving?
The governer on these is set to NOT allow a higher rev when car is stopped and not in gear.
Try to change oil viscosity or filter manufacturer.Some filter manufactures put in a bypass valve that kicks in too early.

Your linkage could be loose; low on transmission fluid; or you need a new flywheel

You have a bad starter if all your connections are good and your battery is measuring 12.7 volts and above with engine off.

Under my 2004 dodge grand caravan hood near the tire we hear a ticking noise which goes faster as we drive. Slows down when we slow down. What could it be?

Could be engine related or driveline related. Do you only hear the noise when the car is driving down the road? Or does it also
happen when the engine is running and the vehicle is in park?

I have a 2004 Yukon Denali there is a ticking noise I hear when I start up ... the ticks get faster as I accelerate ... and slow down at idle ... any suggestions??? thank you

Ticking noise that vary with the rpm indicates a tappet/ cam follower fault or worn rocker bushes and shafts . Where teh racker touches the valve end may be worn and have a spot that is slippng on the valve end and taking up the wear.. Check the top end for this problem. Check for bits loose on the drive belts and if you have a rubber timing belt check it out also

There is a ticking noise when moving

The ticking noise could be coming from a CV joint. Does the ticking noise go away in reverse? A loose brake pad (Anti rattle clip missing or broken) will move back and forth in it's mounting, a warped rotor will enhance this effect, the ticking noise will come when the pads moves upward into it's mounting causing a metal on metal tick.
Does the ticking noise get louder when you are turning the vehicle? If it does this would indicate a worn CV joint.

Ticking and rattling sound

sounds like the problem is brake related. That ticking you're hearing is your front brake rotors, clicking against the sides of the brake caliper. As you speed up, the clicking will get faster untill you won't be able to hear it, (it's still there, it's just inaudible at such a rapid revolution) upon deceleration, you will notice it more prominently, clicking in rhythm to the speed of your wheel's revolution.
basically, It indicates your brake pads are worn down. Unfortunately the condition will get worse, louder, and the car will become extraordinarily more dangerous to drive as front braking will be compromised if the vehicle's braking conditions persist.
A qualified mechanic will setup the brakes, rotors, check for warpage, hone the rotors if need be, and be able to install a proper replacement pad.
