I know a little bit about my truck but I do not know this. Its a 2000 3.0 V-flex.
when I start it up after a cold start it has that marbles in a can sound but only for a second or two. its not loud but definitely audible. after those two seconds it will not do it. warm start nothing. until the next morning when its had time to sit and cool down.
Does my vflex have a cam? dont believe so buttt idk. and if not then it more than likely doesnt have a timing chain right? just wondering how to go about tackling this rattle. only been doing it for 2 weeks now so catch it early
heres a little video kinda what it is. my rattle quits much faster than this poor fellas
