Have the oil pressure checked. i believe the specification is 40-60 psi at 2000 rpm. sticking valves and lifters can cause valve train noise. weak vavle springs can also be the problem. try running an engine cleaner such as gunk motor flush at your next oil change. follow directions specifically. obtain a product designed to aid in cleaning deposits on valves.

I have a 1996 Ford Falcon XR6 4 litre inline 6. The motor started missing at low rpm and suddenly the was a sharp mechanical knocking sound and the motor cut out. When I try to restart it it battles and...


inline 6
xr6 is this a turbo"?
is car stock (original)?
the first is compression tests, at wide open throttle.
exact engine by whom not sure, but is this interference engine?>
chain, drive cams.
noise is never good, find it.
is this SOHC or DOHC, or tell exact motor name,
lets see if wiki does these cars.... its poor, cant even find real ford names for it.
for the BA-BF & FG XR6Turbo, ?

if this is a DOHC engine, say so first. as we never crank them
after noise, ever. we do a leak down tests. BY HAND.
if that fails , the valves are bent, and do not crank engine ever
until the bends are gone; "learn how to respect DOHC engines"

A ticking noise at idle I am going say your valves.There is someting going on with the lifter,The nuts that secure one of the rocker arm maybe loosen out, also make sure the sparkplugs are secured and are tightened up.

Do you have a check engine light on? First thing I would do is unplug the IAC motor when the engine is warm. If the idle speed doesn't change you have a vacuum leak or a bad IAC motor. If the idle speed goes down you might have a bad TPS or IAC
