2005 Sable Ticking Sound

I have an '05 Sable which has only 31,900 miles on it. It was given to us by my grandparents and had only 23,400 on it when we got it 1.5 years ago. Literally one of those little old lady on Sunday cars. It has been meticulously cared for by both myself and grandfather before me, complete service records, etc.

Anyhow, for the last couple weeks now, when I start it, I hear a slight ticking from the engine. I have done some looking around online and found a TSB http://www.justanswer.com/uploads/fo...gine_noise.pdf

I think this may describe what I am experiencing but I am completely unsure. I'm honestly more of a computer guy than a car guy so I am asking here.

Is it a lot to worry about? Wouldn't it be uncommon for a vehicle in such good shape and with such low miles to experience it?

Are you sure your Taurus has the Duratec engine described in the TSB? The 8th digit in the vin # will be a 'S'.

Sable and Yes. Researched it before I posted. Certainly the correct engine.

Re: 2005 Sable Ticking Sound

If you've verified that the noise is as the TSB mentioned, I'd repair as described. The mileage and care have nothing to do with the repair being needed.
