Question about 2001 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
Loud ticking under valve cap upon statrting in am, every am
You have hydraulic lifters, and they need oil pressure to pump them up. Once sufficient oil pressure builds up (which should only take a couple seconds), the ticking goes away. You might help to alleviate some of the problem by getting a product called Seafoam. Pour half a bottle into the oil, drive for 30-40 miles (no more than that, as it does thin your oil out), and then change the oil and filter. Seafoam can clean crud and sludge out. Some of it may be blocking the oil channels to the lifters, and the Seafoam can clean it out and allow them to pump up more quickly.
