Pinging sounds can be explained in a number of ways and be heard differently by any of us. Basically, it sounds like rattling marbles in a muffled can. Take a coffee can wrap in it a shop rag, add a few "marbles" and shake it around. You'll get an idea.
Usually shows up when under a load, such as not being in a low enough gear and "lugging" the engine, or traveling up hill in too low a gear.
"Marbles" are you old enough to know what marbles are? Just kidding!
