Since my '99 was in the shop today I drove my parents' 2000 Duratec to work. Well, you know how after you shut off a car it makes kind of a ticking sound for a while as it cools. I'm not sure if it's the cats or what that make the sound but all cars do it. Well this car does it a ton, way more than my '99 Duratec or any other car we've had. Could something be wrong here?

Probably the aluminum heat shields on the exhaust. If one is loose they will flex and ting even worse. My taurus has had 2 fall off now(95).
