Rattle sound comming from motor.

Well today I decided to change my oil. I pulled my truck over to where I change my oil at and started listening to my motor. There seems to be a rattling sound comming from it. It sounds like a marble hitting up againts something. So I change my oil and I started my truck up after to just let it idle a bit and I could hear it still, but to me it seemed a tab louder now (possibly my imagination?). And now when I sat in the cab I could hear it slightly. It sounds like it may be comming from the bottom end or at the bottom front area... Anyone able to help me at all? Ive got a 3.0... If you need any more info just ask and I will try to get it... I really hate when things go wrong with my truck :(

Actually, I had a rattle that went away with my fan clutch! Apparently, it made a noise when rotating. It sounded like a valve tap. Most 3.0's have some tappet noise if you listen carefully.

But that could be a serious noise and you should have a mechanic give it a listen. It's way too important for us to diagnose online, though we can give you ideas. I wouldn't wait, I'd have it looked at very soon.

Isnt the tappet noise, the injectors? If not that loud, cause i know the injectors are loud on 4.0's, not too sure about 3.0's.

Yes, that could be, Leo. I'm not sure what it is, just that I hear it on most of them. What he's describing, as far as I can tell anyway, is more than that and deserves a good look by an expert.

Alright thanks for the replies. My friends dad is a mechanic and owns his own shop so I will have him or some of his guys to listen to it. Thanks again
