1995 isuzu Rodeo engine noise

\015 I have a 95 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 with 80k mi. and an intermittent clatter. Sometimes it's on start-up other times it occurs after I've been driving for a little while. Most times it's so loud I'm compelled to check the oil level. I tried a heavier oil with an oil treatment. Any ideas?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Valve guides worn and tappet adjustment required, can check tappet adjustment first to see slightly better before removing heads and getting valve guides repaired/replaced on heads common problem
\015\012if raise revs to 1500-2000rpm and hold does clatter come and go come and go (valve guides) if there all the time tappet clearance issue
\015\012if there only under load (1st rev up) for a couple of times then stops possible big end bearing
\015\012all these are common for this engine
I had a noise onmy 2004 that sound similar. It was my heat shield. Noises are usually loose things.
