Head gasket is not sealing water jacket. Coolant is seeping into the push rod hole down to the lifter. Somthing went wrong with the gasket when setting head onto block. Did you ding the gasket?.OR it's possible you got the wrong gasket. You might just get lucky if you try torquing the head bolts again. Or is it possible one of the bolts did not get torqued? One last thought, any chance the head was warped and you did not get it machined? Either way, if re torquing the head bolts does not fix it, you will have to pull the head, look real close at the gasket, probably will need to get a new gasket, check the head for trueness (flat mating surface),use a quality gasket sealer on both side of it, replace all... Yea, simple right? [Not.] Good luck with it.

SOURCE: dodge 3.0 oil leak only when running

My first place I check is the oil pressure switches there are several good oil lead detection kits available just pour the dye in the oil and use the ultra violet light and special glasses to find the leak I also found leaks on the distributor leaking from the hole in the housing indicating a bas shaft seal just replace the dist. if thats the case.
Please rate this a fixya if its helpful to you Thanks you, Randy

SOURCE: slight knock in my motor and no oil is going to lifters

sadly, you motor is now about to be toast.  No oil means no lubrication means the parts fuse together.
The damage is already done it's only a matter if time before the motor freezes.

SOURCE: While running engine runs hard. Also tapping or ticking sounds after installed new oil pump

If you have an adjustable valve train you may need to adjust the rocker arms. Remove the valve covers and look to see if there are adjusting nuts on top of them. If so, get a shop manual and a feeler gague and a couple of wrenches and screwdriver and follow instructions in manual carefully.

Motor knock sounds like rocker arms or lifters?

If your engine is knocking the sound with be at the bottom of your oil pan but if you have lifter or rocker arm problems the sound will be at the top of your engine. One other thing you said your car has 315k it might be time to change your oil pump.

Metal in oil pan have been informed need enignie..WhATS THE DAMAGE?

It depends on why they are there in the first place and how long and hard you drove it like that. At the very least you are going to have replace all the bearings on the crankshaft, this includes main bearings to support it and rod bearings for the connecting rods. You will have to get the crankshaft turned unless it is scoured too much, in which case you will have to buy a new one. You will have to rpelace the oil pump because the metal would go through it and scratch the inside of it bad enough so it won't make the proper pressure.

Since the most common cause of metal in the pan is a lack of oil, it's also likely you may have to replace pistons and rods, because the piston pin can seize up and will make a knocking sound when the engine is running. The engine will have to be torn down so metal can be washed out of the oil passages so you will need a complete gasket kit to put it back together. You will likely have to replace the lifters if they got metal in them from the oil. They will make a clacking noise. If the lifters are bad it's most likely the cam is too. If you have to do this much then the heads will need to be sent out and rebuilt.

By the time you get the bottom end (crank) fixed you will have spent enough to buy a good used engine at a scrap yard. Most yards will warranty their engines but check before you pay to be sure.Hope this helps.

1986 chevette has alot of knocking coming from the engine.Lifters have been adjusted,but problem still persists, what else could it be?

Lifters tick. Rod bearings knock(typically the harder you mash the gas, the louder the knock). poor quality gas can do it if you need a tune-up.

Truck runs fine but constant knocking noise like when you can hear the lifters when you know it needs oil. Yes, I checked the oil and there is plenty in there and just had an oil change Aug. 8th.

the lifters could be going bad or rockers may be going out depends on which engine you have if it is the gm engine it could be piston slap which requires engine replacement

Ticking noise from engine

You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.

Hear tapping noise in engine when starting car

If the noise is coming from the side of the engine where the fuel injectors are, the faint tick from the injectors is normal. If that is not the location of the noise, a stethoscope from an auto parts store will come in handy. Check your oil level. If it is where it is supposed to be, then it is probably not your lifters. If the noise is coming from the lifters, run some motor flush through the engine and start using a better grade of oil (no house brand, Pennzoil, or Quaker State). If it is not from the lifters, then check along the edge of the oil pan with the stethoscope for clunking in the crank case. If it is coming from the crankcase, you probably need new main and rod bearings. Drop the pan, remove the bearing caps, and check the crank surfaces for abnormal wear. If the bearing surfaces look good, you can buy undersized bearings (such as 0.001" undersized) to install on the main and rod bearings.

Leaking antifreeze from oil pan bolts

Its almost impossible to leak antifreeze from oil pan bolts. However if you have a bad head-gasket antifreeze can get into the oil and yeah with that back pressure in the oil pan it can leak. I would look at the water pump first, it is possible that the pump or the seal on the pump is leaking and it is running down the front of the engine and it looks like its coming from the oil pan. Check this vehicle care fully and make sure that it is coming from the oil pan. If it is really coming from the oil pan you would nee more than a gasket you would need a complete head job. Check and let me know, the status. Good Luck
