Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer
This didn't occur until I "hot rodded" the 2.2 liter Chevy Cavalier with a 127,000 miles on it on two successive trips a couple hours apart. I actually thought the problem was the belt tensioner vibrating onto the pulley above it, but replacement proved not to be the case, unless the new part is just as bad. I searched internet all day and found many possibilities, but I've got to believe that knowing what occured before this became an issue has got to narrow the choices.
Since its a loud tapping when you at idle & lifting off the gas petal, (ie constant exc for acceleration) then it's probably a lifter, instead of a rod bearing. Way to check, of course, is to use a piece of cut off hose & listen at the top of the engine, and at the oil pan. Just don't get the hose caught in any belts or fan blade. Listening should easily solve your problem. Rick
