If the tapping sound is from the top , then most probably you are not using the specified engine oil , please try to replace the oil with Castrol Magnetic or Edge! If different sound , please let me know

Do you have the defrost on when it is doing this? Turn it off and see if it goes away. I'm still thinking A/C compressor.

5.3 chevy loud hammering noise

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.

Check Utube for lifter tap, valve tap, and rod bearing noise. If you pull each spark plug one at a time, plugging it back in after each one, the tapping will go away if it's a rod bearing. At any rate, on your next oil change add some valve-medic or similar additive for valve noise. Make sure you follow direction or you will get massive lifter tap if you pour it into a cold engine.
