Anytime I hear the word tap, I want to crawl into a hole and hide. When my intrepid with the 2.7L started to tap, I put in a thicker oil to increase the oil pressure, and it starved the engine of oil and it was over at that point. Still not sure to this day what happened... all I know is it started smelling like gas... and it kocked reallllly loud and had no power... so it ended up in the junkyard and $150.00 dollars worth of a $4,000 car. end rant.
Sorry, didn't mean to scare you, but that problem led up to a series of unfortunate events.. but ultimately led me to my bonneville...
but i am going to let someone else take it from here... i wouldn't put in anything above 10w30 ...just my 2 cents.
