    I have a tapping noise on really cold days. Oil level is fine and it does not last but a minute or two. Could it be the exhaust?

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    It's Ok. Keep your oil clean is 'bout it. [​IMG]

    You can put a oil pan heater on and use it under 30F. You can put it on a timer and have it set to turn on 4 or 5 hours B 4 you leave for work. No tap and U will get heat for your drive sooner. Or U can just live with it your choice.

    My 08 2.7 does the same thing when it's real cold and the Stealership shop Manager said it was a cold start solenoid (whatever that is) and not a lifter. Hope he is right. LOL.
