I'm getting a 2001 Ford Mustnag tomorrow with 121k on it. Theirs a slight ticking sound under the hood once the car is started up. What could possibly be causing that sound?
You have to determine where under the hood it's ticking.
I personally would not buy it till I knew what the noise was, it could be engine related. Have a mechanic look it over for you before purchase, it's called a PPI or pre purchase inspection. Will cost a little but worth it in the long run.
More they anything else, it's is coming from the valve cover. 9 x's out of 10, it's the push rods, or the lifters....let your local mechanic look at it first
