Exclamation 2003 Ford Windstar - Clicking Noise

I have a 2003 ford Windstar, 99891 miles. In December I started hearing this loud clicking sound coming from the engine area and it could be felt in the gas pedal. It happened every time I pushed on the gas pedal. It doesn't matter if I am going fast or slow, or if the engine was warm or cold.

It gets regular tune ups.

I just got it back from the garage about a week ago. I had the spark plugs and spark plugs wires replaced and some other minor things. Today, while driving it started doing it again. You can plainly hear the clicking and feel it in the pedal. Any idea on what this could be, because obviously it was not what my mechanic thought it was!

Also should be noted that the engine will stall or feel like its going to stall when sitting at a red light or stop sign. Also once you push on the gas pedal and finally get going, it bucks and carries on when you hit about 35-40mph

Could be a noisy lifter ? Could try cleaning air idle control valve .

Re: 2003 Ford Windstar - Clicking Noise

Does the clicking change speed with engine rpm or speed of the van? As RS suggested, try cleaning the IAC, and it might be wotrth cleaning the entire throttle body, something that gets missed with routine maintenance.
