This engine is know for timing chain noise. You might also have a collapsed lifter. You would need to remove the rear valve cover and inspect the timing chain tensioner. Make sure the is no play. You could also check the lifters for play when the valve covers are off. If the sound is coming from the lower end then it may be a rod knock. It is common for the water pump to leak coolant into the engine oil. Make sure the engine oil does not look like a milkshake.

You should also check for any codes in the engine. You would need a scan tool for this.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
