A loud ticking noise coming from the front of the engine


Check serpentine belt for extreme wear or tear, also look at pully for obstruction. Could be slight valve tap or timing "belt or chain" slapping against the timing cover case, (whatever Suzuki uses).

I have a 98 mercury tracer the car starts and then turns off but before it turns off it makes a loud ticking noise very loud! and i dont know what it is any help?


It sounds like it could be a broken rod. It's also possible that a valve has stuck open and is being hit by a piston. What you need to do now, is to take the spark plugs out and do a compression check. You may also see damage on one spark plug, which will tell you whether or not to even bother proceeding with the compression check.. If there is metal all over one spark plug, you have some serious damage.

How do you get to the spark plugs on the back of the block on a 2005 Mercury Sable w/ a 3.0L V6 engine?


you have to reach around from up top, no special tricks. just a little maneuvering and some skinned knuckles.

Okay, lets hope it is something simple. Remove the underhood light bulb. At night, in the dark, start the engine and look under the hood. You may be able to see sparks jumping. This would be bad wires. If you can see where the spark plugs go and one has a spark jumping it is just one bad sparkplug. Turn off car-replace underhood bulb.
If you see no sparks then it is most likely the valve train. If you have adjustable lifters they need someone to tighten them up to specifications. If they are not adjustable you may need to replace worn parts.
Make sure you keep fresh and plenty of oil in the engine. It can not repair worn parts but if the oil is low or dirty you will have bigger problems.

Depends on the sound that it makes when you turn the key over.

Clicking noise...usually the starter

If it sounds like its going to start, but doesnt, most likely the battery.

If you have replaced the battery recently, then its the alternator.

Sometimes there can be oil build up over the spark plugs so it doesnt get the spark to start.

Hope you get it fixed!!
