sounds like a lifter tick,next oil change put a bottle of lucus oil tretment in it,will free up a sticking lifter.if you just changed the oil-oil filter,drain out a qurt,put the lucus in it,drive it more than 2 miles.go on a 50 mile round trip,get it up to operating temp.

thanks papa that helps never heard of a lifter ticker but I will try anything I first thought the plug boot or i guess you call it a cover what we used to call it I do alot of my own work on my car my dad was a trucker and no boys just 4 girls

where do i get this lucus treatment I just looked on line in auto zone no lucus

any auto parts store carries it,even wal-mart.is like stp oil tretment,but this stuff works great,best product on the market.you can also get it in upper cylender cleaner,does the same job,you just pour it into a tank of gas.will clean the fuel system,fuel injectors,frees sticking lifters.a sticking lifter is a lifter that is not getting pumped up as it should,is mainley called lifter tapping,no big deal,just use the lucus.it will work for you.I use it in all my vehicles,including the 2 big rigs.
