221-horsepower 3.0L V6 6-speed automatic FWD

18000 mi   The Fusion had a computer reflash in early August. I didn't have any problems, but I read on forums that it improves shifting so I had it done. I didn't mind the shifting before, but it does seem to be smoother now. 
16000   A faulty transmission control module caused intermittent stalling and various drivability problems. 
28000   "Ticking" noise heard from engine within first 15 min. of driving or until engine reaches normal operating temp. 
29000 US $180 I perceive the noise as being related to the lifters or perhaps some reciprocating part in the top end. The engine sounds as though it is slowly coming apart. Everyone who should take responsibility assures me that this is normal but it isn't. 
30000   ticking sound from engine after warmup was bothersome. The dealer did not find anything unusual. 
5000   TSB for throttle response and transmission shifting issues.
