The 3.0L engine had a problem with the lifters that would cause the top end to tick. There is a TSB i believe on how to fix it. If the ticking is coming from the bottom of the engine (sometimes hard to tell) then you might have a Con-Rod knock that starting to show. Eitherway take it to a mechanic for diagnoses.

"Engine temp is low 140 degrees" Bad Thermostat (stuck open) "a ticking noise is coming from the upper part of the engine" Lifters Make a ticking noise, To stop that there are these bags that fill with oil. If you run low on oil the bags don't inflate at you get a clicking. Check you oil level!!! The bags could be bad, the oil supply could be clogged, or something else could be wrong.

i can only presume is lack of engine oil or adjustment on tappets( pls be more detailed)or diesel engine it being a injector blowing

It sounds like the engine timing. The sound is coming from your engine valves. They're not in synch with the rest of your engine. It could also be that the valves are worn out. I'd check the timing first, then the seating on the valves.

either one of your pulleys on the motor is froze up or the harmonic balancer at the bottom of the engine is coming off.I had this happen to me on my 2000 montana.

Before I can answer that question, can you describe where the ticking noise is coming from? Front of the vehicle? Rear? Engine? Is it coming from your Wheels? If its coming from the front of the vehicle you might require an oil change. If its coming from the rear of the vehicle it could be your axle. If its coming from your wheels it could be either wheel bearings or a backing plate for your brakes. Does it happen at regular intervals? Are they random and sporadic?
