midnite is on a distinguished road
update on the tapping and oil burning. the cause for the oil burning has been nailed. i gunked the engine and washed it at a carwash and after about 2 days i saw oil sitting around the #1 spark plug. i looked at the valve cover gasket and saw that its bulged out in the same spot. thatll be fixed tomorrow. the tapping has quieted down now. started buying gas from a different gas station and noticed it cleared things up a bit. but it still taps. its a valve tap that is constant. it can be heard if you're standing next to the truck with it running. but when inside if you can hear it at idle its very faint. and at a steady cruise its not really able to be heard over the road noise until its put under a load. but it has calmed down quite a bit. thanks for all of your help. i'll be asking for more of it here in a few mins on another forum. thanks again,bill
