after my truck sits for over 10 hrs it makes a weird hollow metallic sound for 40 seconds than goes away. the motor is a 88 4.3 and has about 3500 miles on it. i know its not a rod knock. was thinking maybe a weak lifter. any suggestions

thanx

Try a better oil filter like the AC Delco.

It has a a better antidrain back valve to keep the oil up in the top end of your engine.

This has been know to be one of the causes of the tapping.
