Default fast click click click noise out of my engine

it happend first early in the morning when i was going to work i really opened it up and it started making a fast clicking sound so i let off the gas and it got qhiet untill it went back to normal. then it happend again when i was going up a hill on the freeway on fifth gear and i down shifted to fourth around 3200 rpms i had to ease off the gas again and it whent away. i figure if it was the valves or lifters it wouldnt off gone away. any suggestions?

You have spark knock (pinging) its typical on these ford rangers with the 3.0 for some reason. If it goes on long enough it will burn a hole in your piston on normal cars but for some reason rangers just keep going like its no big deal.

x2 on the pinging...its usually caused by carbon buildup in the cylinders

run some injector cleaner and a tank of premium gas...that usually helps clean the carbon out
