Engine Making Noise when accelerating

My truck makes a fluttering or ticking-rattling noise when I accelerate. It only seems to happen at higher speeds (50 mph and up). Friend said it was too low octane fuel but higher octane did not help. Truck does have aprox. 70k. It also stalls when I start it in the morning. Just the first time, when I restart it it runs fine. The sound it makes though is hard to describe. Not a heavy rattle but a sort of light flickering sound. But it is getting noticably louder as time goes by.

Could be carbon build-up on the pistons, causing erratic flame travel in the combustion chamber... 'pinging'...... Decarbon the engine and use a high grade fuel for a few tanks.... also an octane booster can help

I had the same thing in a 96 Ford Ranger 2.3. It was the bolt in the lower belt pulley on the front of the motor. Hope this helps.

Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

Bring in the car to a PROFESSIONAL shop. Mention your problem & ask about a wheel balance, alignment & make your problem clear before any work is done. Mention bearings etc. Ive dealt w millions of csrs at my own private shop & that would be your best approach. NO JIFFY LUBE TYPE SHOP
