Hi, my 1994 F150 4x4 300-6 5-sp makes a "tick tick tick" sound under load.

Flat highway driving?  Nope, at least, not at first, a little now.  Low
RPMs up a hill?  Tick tick tick.  Now, it's ticking a little more, with
less load.  At first, it was just up steep hills.  Now when it's
accelerating away from a light.

The truck has 178,000km (about 110,000 miles) and otherwise runs like a
top.  Burns no oil, and gets about 20mpg on the highway.

No tick at idle.  No tick revving in the driveway.

Please tell me it's not a lifter.  I am hoping for a loose/leaky exhaust
manifold/pipe, or a loos spark plug.  I'm going to take a look at it
Saturday.  Any advice that saves me time and money is appreciated.

My dad was having the same problem with a 91 F150 when he owned it, replaced
several fuel pumps. I own it now and have never lost one yet. The only thing
I could come up with is that I think he was running the tank empty before
switching to the other, which would burn up the pump. Not sure if that is
true, but something to consider looking at.

Just out of curiosity, do you know what brand of replacement pumps youve been
using?  After the Ford unit died, I killed a Carter in 2 weeks, and have just
killed my 2nd Borg Warner.  Thanks for the info

I wouldn't rule out a cracked or loose exhaust manifold if it's a ticking
noise.  Check timing if it is a ping or "clattering".

My 93 Ford XLT 5.0 was doing the samething. turned out to be an exhaust
manifold gasket. I'd recommend looking at that. Look for black residue
around the exhaust manifold.

Both intank pumps were shot when I got my 88 F250, and I replaced them
with carter pumps and everything has been fine for the last 6 months
except, every now and then the POS connector on the top of the sender
comes loose, and the pump looses power.  Seems as though the first time
you need to remove that connector it's a pain, every time after that it
comes off way too easy.  Well anyways, something to consider...

It is a '93.  I still haven't got a code reader to try to analyze this deal,
but I may soon. I was told it could be worn injectors (101500 miles), causing
a flood condition instead of good spray. It clears up fine when throttle is
open wide, like it needs more air to mix with gas. Not sure.
