Stuck lifter or something worse?
I know there are a couple of problems that need to resolved that may be effecting this. I can hear faintly in the engine bay a taping( not high pitched and goes with the rpms of the engine).
-The sound is much lighter than the sound i get when i start the truck and i can hear everything taping till the oil pressure build up.
-I can also here a sound coming though the exhaust. same rhythm as the faint tapping in the engine.
I know i have to redo the head gasket since i have coolant slowly disappearing and I have a little oil leaking onto the manifold. (second time this will be done in 4 years) Ever since i blew oil cooler lines, any hint of smoke or burnt oil concerns me.
Besides this, the engine runs smoother than ever since i got the carbon cleaned out of the manifold.
I'm moving to Raleigh, NC soon so I don't think I should drive for 3 hours at 75 with it like this. Any thoughts?
