ticking noise after spark plug change

Recently did a Spark plug change in my 03 ranger 4.0L and now there is a ticking noise, i was told to replace the plug wires so i did so but ticking noise still there and sounds like its coming from the valve area? not sure how changing the plugs could make it tick but it did, and its pretty loud tick, i can hear it when the hood is down But is alot louder when hood is up, i put old spark plugs in to see if ticking stops and it actually pretty much goes away, the new plugs that i put in are the stock plugs in the Manual which i bought at ford, the old plugs are actually shorter for some reason.. maybe previous owner put wrong plugs in?


Anyway any help would be great, i dont wanna drive it and find out its something bad cause atm its pretty darn loud.

If the plugs are longer and the old ones are quiet, I'd put th old ones back in and see what plugs are supposed to be in it. Look at the new plugs and see if the tip has been hitting something.

Not possibly an injector tick ? though dont why changing plugs would cause it to be honest .

Re: ticking noise after spark plug change

hello, with the old plugs it ticks But not near as loud as the new plugs, also i looked at the old plugs and brought them in and they said they were the wrong ones the previous owner put in, maybe thats why i feel more power, the new ones are longer spark plug then the old ones, Maybe its just getting the spark it needs now and the injectors are just nosier ?
