confused S reg mondeo V6 eng tick at 2000 rpm

Hi there guys. Hope one of you can help.

Recently bought Mondeo 2.5 ghia. Cool car but noticing engine ticking at 2000 rpm (approx) on acceleration especially first and second gear and when cold.
This does not happen on reving engine when stationary...

Any ideas?

Cheers Ricky

Hi Ricky Boy and welcome. I'm not sure of what may cause the problem you mention but will see what I can find out. Hopefully someone else out there may be able to help out with the problem.

Ricky have you had any luck with the ticking.

The only thing I have come up with is a possibly the tappets.

Hi there, just back from holiday....I thought tappets too. I have also been reading that there is a problem with pre ignition (pinking)....This prob sounds too metalic for pinking though.....I'll just have to bite the bullet and take it too garage for estimate......Cheers for replying...Havn't driven the car for a week...Hope the prob has just gone away....

Uh-oh! Sounds like the 'death-rattle'; Duratec Mondeos have a nasty habit of blowing head gaskets on the front of the engine, sounds like a rythmic exhaust blow, but is actually compression getting past the front bank head gasket. Not a cheap (or nice) job.

U can tell if the head gasket is going if there is a milky substance in the oil from memory - quick indication would be to have a look around the oil cap.

The ticking could also be the valve lifters - you can buy some valve lifter silencer from an automotive store, just ad it in and it keeps things quiet.

Ordinarily, an oil/water mix is a fair indicator, but in this case the gasket blows in a weak-spot which is straight through to a large circular cut-out in the gasket corner adjacent to No. 2 cylinder. No coolant is involved and I've no idea what the hole is there for, as it lines up with nothing. Compression finds its way via the hole to atmosphere.

Re: S reg mondeo V6 eng tick at 2000 rpm

i have the same thing in my 1600 cortina, pings at about 1200rpm though, ive had experiences with blown head gaskets & it sounds unlikely

possibly distributor??? mine has been known to ping badly when the distributor advances to much, however tappets are also a possibility

Re: S reg mondeo V6 eng tick at 2000 rpm

What do you mean by a tick? Is it kinda like the sound I am describing? 3.0 Duratec '96, slight problems

last part of that post. It occurs at around 700 to 2200 RPM's for me. Only when I go from light throttle to heavy throttle though.
