i have a 92 plymouth, it has a v6 too but what ive found is one of the pistons are knocking, making a clicking noise.

yea it is. when you press the throttle it speeds up

Check your lifters. Sounds like you have some sticking.

Valves make tapping noises. If its a knock it could be a rod, or maybe a spun bearing, but thats not really a knock. Solution is rip it out and get a v8.
