Default Odd noise I can't figure out where its coming from

I have a 95 ranger 2.3L 2wd that has 245k miles. I've never had a problem with anything besides clutch. But last week I started hearing a weird noise that at first would come and go but now it dosnt go away. It sounds like a stick or something is touching the fan it speeds up when I rev the engine then slows down. Other than the noise evrything is fine no change in acceleration or gas milage. Any thought?

You could have a belt which is starting to shred. I had a timing belt go that way on my Toyota. I could hear the noise but didn't figure it out until it stopped. Dave

My wife's truck had a similar noise that built up over several weeks. I mesed with it several times to no avail. Turned out to be one of the pully bearing. Try pulling the belt and spin one pully at a time by hand.
