sounds like a lifter tap at 3500rpms??
well i'm new here, just got a 94 ranger 3.0 its had all the gaskets changed from the heads up.... runs fine.. 189k
initially it had a lifter tap when it was cold and you first started it.. a little marvel mystery oil and 100 miles later, that problem was fixed..
now its got what sounds like a lifter tick but its at about 3500 rpms, under a light foot..
if you get down on it it never makes a noise all the way to redline..
since i'm new to the whole ford v6 thing, I didn't know if these 3.0's had any issues like piston slap, weak lifters, wrist pins slapping, etc..
it almost reminds me of my 94 yota with piston slap..
any ideas? thanks
