Hoping to get to this next weekend, this weekend is going to be too damned busy.. At this point I'm wondering if it's possible that something got messed up in the driver side head... Or if the timing is off as mentioned before. Can anybody tell me if the tooth count between the LH Cam sprocket and the crank sprocket is supposed to be from mark to mark or ??

TIA!!

Well.. Finally done.. Car is running nicely now.. Still taps a little on startup, but the valve lifters straightened themselves out.. So now I have a full set for sale if anybody needs them.. $80 shipped anywhere in the US. Was low on tranny fluid, going out to top it off now and take it for a spin.. Thank you all for your help.

So you got new lifters or what? My 04 is making that sound, especially when colder and /or excellerating. I thought it was media rattling in the cats since im getting cat codes.Havent found anything touching moving parts under the hood or truck. My motor just got installed a couple weeks ago. I seafoamed and modded the intake and truck runs, idles, smooth. good gas milage. this noise drivin me crazy. Was it the timing for you or valve adjustment? I dont see your post of how you fixed it, just that it (the valves) worked themselves out.

I did not replace the valve lifters.. I have 12 brand new ones waiting to be sold.. haha.. But, in response to your question, I didn't do anything to them, just letting the engine run for 2-3 minutes allowed the lifters to fill up and smooth out, then the noise went away.
