    so the lifters on the engine are wearing... is there something i can do to correct, or at least protect it from further wear/tear? the engine actually has less than 100k miles on it, will i be looking at costly repairs soon? I thought about using an engine treatment, are they any good?

Just put in a thermostat and water pump on my 1992

Check applicable trouble codes? Maybe there is air in the cooling system? If your mil works, you can get some codes, that way. Cycle the key, on--off, on--off, on, then the mil starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Your looking for two digit codes. Double check your work.

fuses blow because of excessive current flow from a dead short to earth. You haven't stated which fuse blows and what the items are covered by that fuse. so check the power wire from that fuse and trace it until you find a burnt area or a place where the power wire is touching the body before it gets to something it is running

You are doomed.That rattle you are hearing are your bearings that have spun,because of oil starvation.The engine is damaged and is not safe to drive because it could throw a connecting rod thru the engine block which will throw oil on the pavement causing you to skid out of control.This will be costly to fix! A engine rebuild or engine replacement will have to be done.

is it a gas engine or a diesel? it could mean two different things depending on the fuel type. black smoke in a diesel is either an air of a fuel problem. in a gas truck there should never be black smoke. it may be a dark blue smoke which is burning oil.
