I think before you start getting ahead of yourself, make sure that is the actual issue with your truck.
I am not near it to diagnose it, I just mentioned that I have seen weak tensioners making the type of noise you describe.
It also could be a multitude of other things.
"My engine makes a tack-tack-tack sound at a stop light" is not sufficient information to figure out what the issue is over the internet.
Have it diagnosed by a professional and you will know for sure what the problem is instead of guessing and worrying.

Yep. You're right Vik. I plan on taking it in possibly as soon as next week if I can. I have an event up the road in Phoenix this weekend that I want to drive to and was just trying to glean any info in case some one else had this same exact symptom happen to them and what they did to fix or understand it. Thanks for your input, amigo.
