I was going to suggest to look at the fan and see if it's hitting something but it sounds more engine alone. oil flush lately? seafoam treatment lately? whatever it is it don't sound healthy -Mike-

i ran seafoam through the brake booster line months ago, maybe i should do it again..
i change my oil every 5000miles and just changed it a few days ago.

im thinking it has something todo with the timing or maybe my motor sucked up the oil pan gasket like some of the older 2.3 did, but i thought they fixed that in 93.

idk, it seems to fun fine.
