I have an 02 explorer it has a faint ticking sound while in gear and under a load the only time you can really hear it is if you are beside something. What could be causing this problem? It also is sluggish sometimes when pulling out from a stop sign

Ticking maybe exhaust leak as for sluggish how recent tune? Recent repairs? Check engine light on?

Check for exhaust leak if leaking will give O2 false reading and lean out bank leak on causing sluggish
