Well known fact is that it does drop with a very noticeable knock also you would know when it does a good lack of performance, MPG and so on. Mine started with a light tap and goes away which the valve adjuster bore was cracked clicking back to back my MPG was good and my performance as well, My compression was right on the dot and my Dyno run proved that there was no loss. As the Time passed the valve adjuster failed causing the problem on the weak OEM design of the Cylinder Head. My engine never Overheated and always was taken care of. Not all tap,knocking and failures are caused by the same thing but they all have something in common it needs to be addressed and get fixed asap which is my point in all this I posted.
