noise 3.0?

A fellow Ranger owner left this question on mycardomain can you guys give any advice on what it could be?

"hey u seem to know a lot about rangers. i have a 1998 ranger 3.0 and after reaching 100 000 miles and changing the oil. ever time i drive now it makes a ticking sound that goes with the engine rps. this seem to be a common problem with the 3.0s and ford says they don't know what it could be. i thing it might be the oil pump because it doesn't sound like a valve do u know anything about this ? thanks"
