Shouldn't though. What gas do you use? Try Chevron.

My towncar would do that every once and a while. Then it started doing it non-stop. It's my excuse to put in a PI engine now. Still runs fine. Well, it did when I parked it anyhoo.

Well, the ticking is starting to get to me. I can sort of hear it when I'm driving and of course I'm listening for it. Also, in park, I rev it up and can hear it. I just wish I knew what it was then I would try and take care of it.

So, I have the 5w-30 oil in it. Should I add something to make it thicker? I did use the oil filter that was recommended. Motorcraft one.

Lastly, should I be concerned about this? What's the worse that can happen??

Did you take it in to the dealership? Maybe you can get a mechanic to just drive it for a few minutes. I fel its hard to diagnose without listening where the ticking is coming from.

Shallot,

That was definitely the next step. I need to check out a rubbing noise in my right front wheel well anyway. Probably going to take it to Ford. Just don't want to get charged up the ( ! ) for them looking. (Not my ass, but the car.) But, at least I will know right?

Why would you want to make it thicker?

You sure it's a lifter ticking and not an exhaust leak ? My passenger side exhaust manifold has a broken rear stud that I haven't got around to replacing yet and it has a ticking sound very similar to a lifter tick. You can hear it more under power and when engine is reving then you can when it's just idleing. Sometimes the ticking will go away as the motor heats up and the exhaust manifold expands and seals the leak a little more.

BTW............. 5W - 30 conventional is fine but synthetic is best.

If its only on accelerating it might be a ping. Try pulling the octane adjust jumper in the engine compartment and see if it changes. Could be a plugged EGR. My Two Cents

OK, well, I listened very close today down at Advance and here is what I got. The guy listened to it and said it was no big deal and that he could barley here anything.

Second, I checked the oil and I said,"Hows it look.?" They said it looked like I just changed my oil. (150 miles ago.) I said I changed due to the thicker weight. She said I should use thicker oil in higher mileage cars. (154,xxx) I said, well, I have been researching it (CV.Net)and I was told to use what you all said. 5w-30 (I did use Valvoline Max Life for engines over 75,XXX miles.) <-- Is that OK?

Now, back to the ticking. Again, it sounds not at the top of the engine like where the lifters are, but more mid to bottom engine.

It almost sounds like a "tock" instead of a "tick" When the car first starts, it's ticking up around the top of the engine,(I don't drive until that goes away. 2 mins. or so.) but the "tock" sounds like it's at the bottom. You could almost say it has a slight rattle sound without the rattle. ...Damn, I'm confusing myself.

I'm sorry for beating this thread to death but hopefully it has been useful to everyone here.
