Probably damaged by cold and condensation. If you can take it apart you might also spot dry joints caused by contraction.

Have a 06 Pilot with 3.5 v6 and 120000 miles. Has developed a ticking in valve train. Valves were adjusted, plugs replaced engine is spotless inside no visible signs of any problems and no codes yet...

the valve train has nothing to do with the adjustment of the valves , , the ticking sounds like something may be hitting somewhere , when you rev the engine does the ticking go faster or what you have to be more specific on this problem ,

2002 windstar has knock after starting with a dead battery

I trust you DID NOT use a Battery Charger and put the negative side of the charger on your battery post. Positive connection is OK, but the Neg. needs to be on the cars body or you can damage the solenoid or starter section. In some cases the Cars Brain can be damaged and cause all sorts of unusual things to happen.

2008 honda accord air will not work ,has freon ,relay works but compressor will not kick on.

#1 top A/C post here ever. bravo that.
this is caused by by the AC brain.
(location varies by year, and country)
A/C brain discrete, cira 90s
to after 2007 , they moved the brain, now pure software inside
the ECU or BCM , on most cars.
it really dont matter much where it is until you get to back probe the bugger. right?
so , here is the reasons for A/C clutch dead.

1:clutch bad, apply 12v to it see if it works (wires discon, please)
do so for on 1second, so as not damage system.
check for coil ohms near 1ohm. at clutch.
infinity is bad coil.
OR do :
1b" 12v to coil AC on? any volt meter works. 11 to 15v typical.
13.3 to 14.7 running engine typical.
yes, clutch dead.
2: 12v not at coil of clutch bad relay.
3: relay coil not energized.
3a: power to relay not on coil, if yes, bad relay .
3b: relay coil dead. no power. the brain has it shut down!

4: the brain, stops the AC for all these reasons
simple answer , inputs wrong.
full answer:
a: too low freon pressure, in truth or sensor fibbing
b: too high freon pressure, same, reasons.
c: ENGINE over load, (pulling trailer or going WOT )
d: engine overheat. (ecu say so or AC has its own sensor saying so, RTM.
e: Evap core (the cold core in dash) has frozen over to a ice brick. (a freeze sensor is there) caused by stuck open expansion valve. in core.
f: no power to AC brain, 90s cars. or missing ground,
g: AC not on, or brain can not see fan going, usual the is just
the 12vdc to fan missing. or the wire fell off.

some cars have all this, my 96 does.
on newer cars the ECU can shut the AC down for many reasons.
most are related to safety to the driver, or Compressor.
for what reasons, only the FSM answers that , and varies
by year, engine type, model and country sold.
if in usa , you didnt say. then alldata dot com has these facts
and more , under section called HVAC.

The brain will not allow you to burn up the compressor or worse.
it tries very hard at that. even as old as 1991 cars. (some)
today all.

When i switch on my ac it give sounds bt colling is correct . is there any problemia clitch magnet

what gives a sound?
bt , what is Bt. but?
i think you meant, but cooling is not correct.?
you left out NOT?
that is ok, you must be using a CELL,

ok A.C school 101 (short)
it fails in 2 ways, electric or the Freon Loop.
2 ways. (one easy , 1 harder)
first pray it's electric (cheap and easy)

we always work that first. (electric, see why?)
the car has a A/C brain, it has many names but in English no tslang.
it is the "A/C logic module." or BRAIN.
This module protects the parts from damage, or overload.
old cars just melted. not smart cars. the brain is smarter.
My comments are typical of era.

So, you were smart, the clutch A/C, but failed to say,
IS IT ENGAGES, or NOT? the pulley spins all the time running.
but not the main shaft of the compressor, it must spin.
at full RPM !!! This is the brain DEMANDING A/C.
if not the BRAIN, has it turned off.
Keep in mind the brain on some cars is inside the BCM.
body brain, and not a separate A/C brain.
reasons for CLUTCH OFF.
the Brain sees and error , list of errors.
1: A\C not on.
2: fan not on (heater fan in cab shared by A/C)
3: evaporate frozen (packed in ice)
4: engine overload, (up hills, too steep)
5: engine overheat. obvious, but the sensor wire fell of can do that.
6: freon pressure too low, risking compressor destruction. and collateral damage max.
7: freon pressure too high.
8: normal, the brain sees normal cab temperature and cycles off.
saving fuel and wear.

what do i do? ,
use a volt meter to find the input that is wrong
to the brain. do not hot wire the clutch ever.
or risk #6 (i warned you, dont let hackers kill the good parts)

that is what we do.
if you find low pressure is true (logic true, ) then that is why.

the brain defeated the A/C due to that fact. a dead clutch .
check the pressure, mine reads 40psi, now.
my cheap walmart filler has a hose, and came with
simple instructions, read them and try that.
do not over fill the system.
$25 the kit costs. I keep one handy at all times.

Clunking/ticking noise during acceleration in 3rd and 4th gears

This sounds on the base of it to be pre ignition, if so the moment you take the foot off the gas it goes? The cure is to retard the ignition timing slightly, have you recently changed your octane of fuel? this will also cause this?
The noise is caused by the expansion of the compressed gases expanding before the piston reaches top dead centre causing the piston to \'rattle\' left unchecked will cause permanent damage and engine failure

My 1988 saab 9000 turbo started ticking after i took off from a dead stop in the rain so i think it may have redlined a bit it comes from the upper region and sounds like a pen tapping on a table but...

You probably now have a bad lifter or two. This will cause your push rod to "hit" the rocker and make a tapping sound rather then "push" it. Try going to your local parts store and getting an additive to put in your oil that helps restore lifters. Otherwise you'll need to replace them.
