Default Valve tap(?)

I have a 2003 6 cyl. with 160,000 miles and just started hearing a valve tap
(?). After it warms up it goes away,but what`s the fix involve? Is there
something I can do or is this something major.I bought the car with 40,000 miles
and don`t know the maintenance history. The previous owner said he did regular
oil changes,but didn`t have the receipts. I`ve done regular oil changes. Thanks

The 4.0 is not a quiet engine by any means, mine sounds like a sewing machine at a sweat shop. But if it just started making noise, take a look at the exhaust manifold for leaks, make sure the oil level is full, and basic thing like that.
Steering stabilizers will not cure or cause death wobble, they only mask the real problem that is causing death wobble. Oil pumps do not make pressure, they create flow. Bearing clearence and restrictions make pressure. It's the crank sensor.
