Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
'97 Ford Explorer AWD V8. Engine taps when accelerating, let off gas and it stops. Sounds worse going up hills. Only hear during acceleration and sounds like coming from engine compartment passenger side. Don't hear when in park or coasting.
HOPE IT'S NOT PISTON SLAP, IF LACK OF MAINTANENCE WAS THE CASE MAY BE INTERNAL DAMAGE OR VALVETRAIN DAMAGE. IF IT RUNS ROUGH MAYBE SOMETHING ON ROTATING ASSY DAMAGED.
