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.

its a very common problem, its a part of the heater system called the blend door and its located inside the dash, the ticking noise is cause by the blend door motor constantly slipping on the blend door gear. these are made of plastic hence why they break. BUT there is an american (lhd vehicles) site called heater treater www.heatertreater.net and i am working with these guys and trying to get a blend door made up for rhd models. heatertreater makes theres out of metal, but it is still a painful job to replace them, taking between 4-8 hours. BUT apparently the blend door is accessible from the foot well, for more info go to the website above, they are very helpful. hope this helps.

The mode door actuator is stripped,youll have to buy a replacement from a ford dealership, they will stock it its a very common fault. To access it remove the glove box and youll be able to access 2 of the 3 mounting screws just break off the third youll probably have to remove the right air duct to gain access.

Ticking noice gets louder when warm


If it goes tick, tick, tick, you might be low on oil or your lifters may be pecking. It is usually a sign of low oil or engine damage in the block. Check your fluid first. It may be a quart or two low. If not, it will need fixed eventually. That is up to you.

2003 Ford Ranger ticking noise, not a ping or knock. It is coming from the engine.


THE ticking noise coming from the engine ..is it just a 1 tick on idle at about each rev of engine,,and does it make any differance to the running of engine ,,Does it get softer when it gets warmer.
As it sounds like a loose tappet and being a oil adjusted tappets this thought of thing does come in now and again. and the best thing to do is to get a small plastic tube 25mm (or 1' ) and 2ft long and put it to your ear and listen at the top of the rocker cover ans see if the noise gets louder in a certen place ,as you will hear it if it is there..
Other wise it could be a Small end on the conrod which the piston is connected to.... lets hope not.
So let me know as soon as poss the answers to all the above. Ron
