    Idk the tapping problem. Maybe bearings in tranny? But do you have any leaks as far as overheating

    Going on only the info given, sounds like it could be a lifter.
    Does the tapping speed up and slow down as the engine does?
    How often, or have you ever, changed both the engine oil AND the filter?
    What filter are you using?
    What oil are you using?
    ...without being there, that's where I'd start.
