FUEL INJECTOR

1995 Mazda 626

Engine problem
1995 Mazda 626 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

There is a " Ticking" sound whenever I give the car gas and it stops around 55-60 mph but starts again when I go slower than 55-60. It's not the valves in the engine so could it be a bad fuel injector?

Does the engine do it on a rev in neatral? Does the car have to be moving to make the noise?

It does it both ways.

Not likely you will be able to hear a fuel injector at 55 mph. Possible exhaust leak? Does it change with wheel speed or engine speed?

Sounds more like a lifter or exhaust leak, injectors tick, but not loud enough to be heard while driving.
