I tried MMO and Rislone but so far, nothing changed. I think the noise decreased just a little, but it could be because the ambient temp finally went up above 80.
Just gotta learn to live with it.

That way, when the next person asks me if my car is a diesel I'll just say "Damn right it is".

Sounds normal again and runs fantastic.

did it make your top end feel "gone"?

Anyway, after a couple of thousand miles on the Castrol HM, the engine sounds remarkably better, less clicking from the valves, and no clacking on cold startups.
Amazing! Thanks Korrupt66!

I tried something yesterday and to my surprise it worked GREAT! I still had mmo, Mobil 20w50 and a fram filter. I took some suggestions and changed my filter to a wix. I couldn't find a puralator in my area (central NH). I also changed my oil to castrol high mileage. I didn't take the car out till today and WOW what a difference. I never thought that this change would make such a difference. I didn't need to change the oil for another 1,500 miles but it was well worth the $14 and 30 min of time. Thanks for all your suggestions and I hope my experience helps someone else. Korrupt66
Pep Boys in Manchester has them.
