i read the other threads on this but just doesnt seem right to me, i have a loud tick, that doesnt go away when warmed up, (but will randomly go away at times for 30 seconds or so, and will start again) not very often though. and increases in speed the higher my rpm, (obviously) im going to try the slow rev to 3000rpm's tomorrow, but i need to know if its a faulty lifter or valve? if you guys need a video of the noise i will post one.:dunno::( i dont want her to die so soon!

I am in the process of rebuilding my engine amd I can tell you this...while taking my valbe lifters out, there was actually a head of one valve lifter MISSING and that was one of the noises I was getting. Take off your valve covers and look to see if you see any missing...as a start. Or add a bottle of Lucas oil additive to your next oil change. That stuff is the real deal!
