My 1995 Pajero V6 3litre, done over 225 000Ks automatic has over the past few months started to make a ticking noise when the paj trys to pull a high gear in proportion to its speed, I can hear a ticking noise coming for what appears to be under the centre on the car. It does not eminate through the cabin and you can only hear it with a window down. If I put my foot down she picks up a gear and the noise goes away, however if i let it fall back into the same gear the nosie returns if my speed isn't right. The car doesn't appear to be struggling in this high gear, infact it appears to have ample amounts of power to pull it through. Just the ticking noise is bothering me. When I say ticking noise I surpose it is more like a cling.
Any help would be much appreciate.
And thanks to all those who respond to my last posting.

Maybe someone has tied a cable-tie around your tailshaft....... That always makes for a headscratching experience....._____________________________________________

Hi
Does the noise go away when you put the clutch in? And does the ticking accelerate when you accelerate? If so it's the "throw-out" bearing.

There is no clutch becasue its an automatic transmission, and the nosie does not increase as i accelerate.
Thanks anyway

If it comes and goes when the trans is changing and from the centre of car it doesnt leave much.I would get your transmission checked out by someone who has had experience with pajero's .Maybe pay them to do a service and ask them to drive and listen.
An outside chance is loose bolts on the torque convertor/flywheel.Happened on my commodore after a mechanic forgot to tighten them.

Pinging with low revs / high load ???Life is short- but there's always time for a yarda.

Bradley could be right .Pinging or pinking or a low staccato rumble caused by fuel burning unevenly in the upper combustion chamber.It causes the piston rings to warp and jump around which makes the noise.Try a tank of 98 ron fuel (premium unleaded )and see if it goes away.
