ok , let me know the oil pressure cold & when it gets hot

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have to buy a pressure gauge... But now I see oil slashing around in the head... Changed coil wiring harness... Most of the sound it was making went away I have just one clicking noise coming from the head now... I noticed my exhaust cam gear seems to be wobbling... And the clinking sound sounds like it's the cam chain hitting in the the valve cover
Expert:  Joe Barfield replied 8 months ago.

ok id check that , but it seems to be getting better....you sound like the oil pressure is a lot better....maybe the compression rings will seat & the blow by will stop just give it a 1000 miles or so....take care ....please rate my answer

Let me asked this I got a code today p0340 if the intake cam is off a tooth on cam chain side would it cause the car to make that clinking noise?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Although it was not as loud today compared to two days ago... Noise sounds like it want to go away at times
Expert:  Joe Barfield replied 8 months ago.
