Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
The noise you hear is a valve train issue. Compression is being lost slightly due to a lifter/tappet issue.
the top end of the motor needs to be dismantled so an inspection can be done.
Please understand that I don't know your skill level or toolsyou have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience isappreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace arepair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have todeliver bad news:)If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatlyappreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and Iwill still assist you after you have rated me too if anotherquestion pops up.
