    Is this a repetitive clicking noise while the engine runs, or does it happen erratically?

    Incidentally, your Taurus is fuel injected, not carbureted.; i'm taking it you mean around the throttle body and intake manifold area.

    I'm sorry to say that without hearing the noise I can't be of much more help. Try a local mechanic - have them help you hear the noise.

    Check the directory to find a shop near you:
