My best guess is that you might have thrown a rod. You will experience a great loss of power, and if you were to drain your oil, you would notice a decent amount of metal chunks. Generally a light tapping noise is uncommon for a engine with 80k, but depending on how well it has been taken care of (ie. oil changes, high RPM, low grade fuel) it is possibe to damage an engine with that low mileage. You would be better off taking your vehicle to a reputable mechanic that has access to rebuild parts. Good Luck.

Carried my 2005 free star to local shop and they said they thought it was a lifter or a rocker arm problem it makes a loud knocking sound..


Takes about 1 1/2 hours to figure it out. I can remove both valve covers in about an hour. 15 to 20 minutes to see which one is bad, if one of them are bad. Lifters and rockers arms usually make a ticking sound. Knocking is usually the piston rod. could be bearings at the crank or the wrist pin at the top of the rod. I've seen valve springs broken and only cause a ticking noise.

Lifter


It could be lifters but its more likely that your not getting oil to the top right away. Probably plugged oil passages in the cylinder head. Remove the valve covers and clean it out. Change your oil and see if it helps. The damage may alreay be done though

64 Chevy pickup, rebuild engine, tapping noise in


Remove the valve cover and rotate the engine and check to see if all the valves are opening the same amount. If not, you have either a bad lifter, bent pushrod, or cam going flat. Check your valve lash with the valves closed. You should be at 0 lash at all of the rocker arms.

Valve train tapping?


The 6.0 engine had an issue with piston to bore clearances, from the factory these clearances were excessive. It is reffered to as "piston slap". This condition is known by GM, but most dealers say it's normal. It can be as slight as an annoying tick, to a clearly audible clacking noise. Unfortunately the condition was under played by GM, and there are many folks who haven't been able to get help with their trucks. I own an '03 Silverado w/6.0, and hear this noise everytime I start my truck. I deal with it, because I'm a mechanic and figure I'll be able to fix it if I need to. Research more online about this condition. I've found many websites that relate to this issue (Google: 6.0 piston slap) I hope this helps.
