matalic noise around 4rmp

98 3.0v6 mantrans. if i go up a mountain and have to run the **** out of it to make it up. around 35 to 4 rmps i start to her maby like a tick. its not bad its just enough to notice. is that just cause the engine is being pushed or what. it doesnt do it at normal rmps like 15 to 3.
