It sounds like you are more describing a lifter problem or a VVT problem. Either way, with it sounding like a rod or a hard knock, I would have the internals checked on this engine. You definitely don't want it to be a rod and end up buying a while engine if it comes apart. Same with the lifter. The VVT will just make noise and the truck will stall out and not start from it jumping time.
You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see, touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.
Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback,
