My 05 Nissan Titan is developing some audible valve lash in the engine. It has 116k miles and I need to drive it for 4 more years. Am I fucked? How much is a top end rebuild?

Exhaust leak? I've heard that the manifolds Crack on certain years.

Its funny you bring that up, I was wondering the same thing when I heard it.

Ive not heard of this being a common problem. I cant check identifix until monday. Hopefully someone with more experience on them can chime in. I would definitely use a stethoscope and make sure the source of the noise wasnt exhaust or belt/pulley related.
As much as I hate them, they are stout, reliable trucks. Good luck, heres a bump.

Valve lash ?
I doubt that is the case on such a low miles motor. Cracked or rusted out exhaust manifolds is likely.

Thanks guys, I'll look into a possible exhaust leak in the manifold.

Could me major $ if I recal correctly. Keep an eye on your rear axle seals as well.
