TAPPING NOISE

2002 Dodge Ram

This ram 3.7l, v6 has a tapping noise comming from the front of engine. If you put a screwdriver on the ac compressor you can feel and hear this noise. Taking off the serpintine belt noise is still there, and its not at the valve covers. If rpm goes up the tapping goes up and slightly lower in volume. It has 100k miles. This tapping is definetly louder than a sticky valve. Please help
thanks
