If you have a 6cylinder, assuming by your username, then i would say if your engine has a sound like that then get to a mechanic, because you have no "rockers" really, you have overhead cam, lobes lifting roller pedestals. should be no noise coming from them.

Had a problem like this many years ago and found the dip stick cap had come lose and allowed dip stick to go futher down and hit crankshaft webs.
