Hey People, I need some help, engine Just started Ticking/Tapping, Like in the Front of the engine. I [Know]/got a feeling it might be a Valve or something? Check out the Vid below of what it sounds like. I Was wondering what this Means fofr Me?
1st Time I noticed it was Sometime Last 2 Months When the Oil had ran low w/o Me knowing, But caught it Like 2 day Later, & Topped it off, It quieted down some to Just a "Tick-Tick-Tick", then, stared again like last 2 weeks, Only this time Louder, Like "Clack-Clack-Clack", Almost Sound Like a Truck or Diesel Truck.
So I Changed the Oil, Switched to Synthetic Blend From Valvoline. Noticed a difference right after the Oil Change, But You can tell its still there. Not as Loud as it was.
The Oil changed didn't show anything shiny Or Metallic particles, But Oil was Dirty - Black/Dark As Midnight, So I'm Just preparing cos I Might have to be pulling the Head Pretty soon, Or I Might Just Over estimating? If I do have to Pull the Head, What do I have to do? or Be looking for? Or Looking to Change?
