    Okay, I am curious what this noise is:

    I am not talking about the normal ticking that you hear from the lifters. The rattle in the video is much more obnoxious than any lifter ticking noise.

    Thoughts?

    Def coming from valve train...my money would go to new tensioners first (and throw new chain and guides while in there)
    Also maybe oil pump starting to fail
    Outside chance it’s worn out phasers (caused by failing pump)

    Yea, I thought so too. A trusted mechanic that I know thought the same thing. I am disappointed to say the least. I have went above and beyond maintaining the truck. I have been from Florida to Prudhoe bay and lots of places in-between. LOL I thought the Gen 2 was the only one to have engine problems :) Decisions decisions.......
