Hey Michelle==My son had a rodeo and the lifters which are incorperated in the rocker arms would make noise every so often. He would get some GUNK engine flush and follow directions and it would stay gone for another good while. He changed his oil every 3000 miles. And changed the timing belt every 60,000 miles He sold it with 225000 miles and had no major engine repairs. Goodluck Joe



There's a good chance one of the lifters (tappets) has failed. They use oil to build pressure in the houseing to hold up against the spring pressure. If one fails then the push rod will gain some slack and will bang against the rocker arm as it moves up and down. Sounds like you need a bit of top end work done on the engine. You can do this yourself, just get a repair manual and follow the instructions.
