Check oil level

Check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge Improper oil pressure

going to hydraulic lifters and/or engine sludge causing blockage of

oil flow to lifters. Get an engine flush and oil change and see if

that helps, if it doesn't get the truck to a mechanic as the

problem maybe much more serious.
