Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Is it a low down in the engine toc, toc, toc or a lighter tic, tic , tic sound?
The lower one is quite often the main bearings, rather than pulling the engine to fix it run 10W30 oil in it instead of 5W30 and treat the old lady with respect and don't rev or drive her till the knocking stops. It stops because the oil pressure has build up. If it is the lighter ticking this is the hydraulic lifters, don't worry about it, just do the same. Make sure you don't go longer than about 4000 miles between oil changes. I put Synthetic blend in all my cars and run 5000 miles between changes.
Hope this helps.
