Oh, sorry.. 2003 V6 6Speed 70,000 miles..
Once you pull the covers check the rollers for the rocker arms. Some 03 and 04s have had the needle bearings come out of the rollers. Then the cams are destroyed in short order.
Also, I have not seen many low mileage J series make valve train noise. The only ones are what I mentioned above or ones that have been overrevved. Over revving even a little will cause the pistons to kiss the valves, some will keep running ok, but make noise. Others drop compression and run like crap
