Have it inspected to confirm your theory.

Im gonna call BS on this as well...if it is an early 2.3 duratec there is a recall on the mains, but i still doubt they are bad unless you lug the crap out of it or oil change isnt in your vocabulary

it may be it may not be the mains but if im going to drop the pan it check them i might as well change them or is there a way to check without droping the pan?

i dont know how to explain the sound but it only does it going up hill when i let off the gas at around 4k

my cousins a mechanic he said it sounded like i may want to check the mains

wasnt sure if your trans since it is not listed.

more likely would be the timing chain...2.3s sound like sewing machines anyway
