The truck still starts and runs and there no

time with oil before it got bad or is it on its
way out??

low oil may have kicked up some grit but was always lubed enough or it would have thrown a rod real quick , run engine cleaner and change oil ,should be better than was

I appreciate the advice will do that..I have been driving it on and off for7 days now so I'm glad I didn't screw anything up and I hope this makes this tapping go away.thank you
