sorry to be a thread-digger, but has anyone ever successfully fixed this? I'm having the same problem and it drives me nuts.

If you have the 3.0 engine , search the site for cam syncronizer.
When it's going bad it can make a variety of noises.
Don't wait to inspect it. If it goes , so does your engine as it drives the oil pump.

I actually meant to post my last post in here... so, here it is again...
yanked it (pun intended), metal gears, immaculate condition... added some more oil to it before plopping it back in. oddly enough, it seems to run a little better, but the jingle noise is still loud and clear... meh.

Are you running the correct weight oil in it ?
Many have found that too heavy an oil brings out the valve train rattle.
You should be using 5w-20 or 5w-30.
10w oil is too heavy.

it's probably the bolts falling out of the flywheel and mains... sounds like jingling washers on a loose bolt.

I am beginning to wonder if it's not my starter jingling... I'm about at the point of giving up and trading it in on a newer ranger.

yes, it really is that annoying to me! I cannot explain why it bugs me so much, it's loud enough that I can clearly hear it over the stereo (need better one) and the rush of air pouring in all 4 door seals!

any thoughts?

Haven't read this whole thread, but I had this problem and honestly it was a very simple fix (after 1.5 years of trying to find it) heat shields on catalytic converters... Remove them
