Default Loud ticking when RPMs goin down...

I think something might be loose in the valvetrain. Is there a way I can just take off the valve covers and make sure everything is tight with a torque wrench or something. Or what else am I gonna have to do.... Thanx

I don't think that's your problem.. Do you have enough oil?? What about blowing any smoke??

White smoke isn't necessarily bad.. Blue smoke is though...

If you have plenty of oil, see if you can check your oil pressure w/ a real gauge, and not the in-dash one.... It's possible you may have bad oil pressure and/or oil pump.. You could also have a bad HLA, or a sticky valve..
