eek Mustang

Hello, would anyone happen 2 know what would cause loud tapping in the motor of a 2000 v6 mustang 3.8 liter. It has not lost any power and no lights have come on. It is a continous loud tapping noise, I was told it was a rod and someone else said that it could be something else. Help

Re: Mustang

It could be a number of things.

Is the noise louder when you first start the engine?. Does it loader when the engine is under load?.

It could be a hydraulic lifter.
