Hey guys, I have a v6 3.8 mustang with a tick coming out of the driver side of engine. I heard it could be a lifter or exhaust leak or both? I dun really know what the problem is or solution or how to diagnose this..very new to all this...any help would be great. thankyou.

Have a buddy take a shop rag and place it over the exhaust, close it off for a few secs, while your listening at the motor.....
if the ticking gets worse, it's exhaust. if not, most likely a lifter.

you can probably do it yourself, but a buddy makes it easier.
