If the noise is coming from the front of the engine the timing chain adjuster or related part may be the problem. If it was run out of oil there could be valve train damage or lower engine crankshaft related damage. One other thing to check is to make sure all the sparkplugs are tight. There will be an odd noise if a sparkplug is loose. 99 towncar has a 4.6 engine and premium is not necessary.

Ok I just had my serpatine belt relace cause it had a few cracks in it I had a tuneup done back in June of 2014 ..... I noticed the knocking or tapping sound today an Friday not loud at all but I could here it for some reason o keep having an emissions evaporative system leak gross leak p0455 a test was done using an emissions smoke machine there were no leaks no wetness no smell of gas anywhere the smoke came thru the correct line only thing with this issue is there were wires that ran along my fuel line one was burned just a little they were repaired an secured the service engine soon light went out an just came back on Friday the same code came up again
