Update: There is apparently a TSB by Toyota in Aug 2011 about a defective piston assembly which causes excessive oil consumption for 07-09 tC's and affected xB2 with the same 2AZ-FE engine as us.
55k Miles on this 2008 Scion tC. Regular oil change intervals and never let the oil go low. Never had any issues before but on this last interval I noticed this unnerving tapping or knocking noise which seems to be coming from the upper end of the engine.
Fixing A Car That Loses Oil
Scotty Kilmer, mechanic for the last 45 years, shows how you can fix a
car's engine that you keep having to add engine oil to. It can be as easy
as replacing a cheap PCV valve, or as expensive as needing a full engine
overhaul. Scotty shows how you can find out.
What Does Engine Pinging / Detonation Sound Like
This is a car engine that has a ping. Also called spark knock, preignition
or detonation. If left uncorrected it can ruin the motor. Caused by either
a lean fuel condition, carbon deposits in the combustion chamber, over
advanced ignition timing, wrong spark plugs, or overheating.
F150 5.0 Engine Knocking Noise Video 3
This is another video of the knocking noise coming from my 2012 F150 5.0.
I'm doing this to 1) catalog the noise, and 2) help anyone else that may
hear something similar. I've been told thus far that it's normal engine
noise - everything from injectors to the fuel pump..even due to engine
30ft Flamethrower exhaust!

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
