The car has had a slight ticking sound from the engine for the last 3yrs and I was told by a few repair shop its normal for the Ford mustangs. However, last week the sound was louder than normal....sounds like an open exhaust. It starts when the engine is turned on and then fades away after 15 seconds. It comes back as you accelerate or rev the engine.

there engine light was ON. So I had it scanned, and the Autozone store, suggested we install ignition coil. these did not help either.

Can you tell if the noise is more from the driver's or passenger side of the engine? It may help to put your head close to each front tire when the noise is occurring.
