My '00 Venture (52K miles) got a rapid tapping sound today.
After an hour driving in traffic jam, I stopped in a mall.
When I started again, there was a loud "tac tac tac" that became faster as
the engine speed increase.
I stopped the engine and started again. Still the same problem.
After driving 5 miles the sounds went off, but came back after a traffic
Oil & coolant level OK, no light in the instrument cluster
Before bring it to the mechanic any advices are welcome
(It seems to be a valve lifter isn't it ?)
