I have a Malibu with what sounds like the famous piston slap, however it doesnt go away. I replaced the lifters because I had to replace a leaking intake gasket anyway. It has new plugs and wires and has always made the sound even before replacing them. It sounds like it's coming from the top of the engine however I am open to any and all diagnostics. Please leave a comment. Thanks

S10 2.2 knock before/after lucas
96 s10 with 156xxx miles. Boughtit for 400 bucks and the guy said it loses
oil pressure. Replaced the sending unit and changed the oil with gtx 10w-30
high milage which improved the oil pressure somewhat. I discovered the
knock in the motor after i bought it. The First clip is me just starting
the truck from a cold start. Great oil pressure and no knock. Second clip
is after the motor is warmed up you can start to hear the knock. Third clip
is me pouring lucas oil to see if the helps (dont worry i drained about a
quart of oil before i put the lucas in so the oil level was correct). Forth
clip is the truck running after i put the lucas oil in. Not to much of a
difference in the knocking but it helped my oil pressure alot. Fifth clip
is after i took her down the road and got on her a couple times. FYI when
the motor has a load on it (via. Me accelerating up to speed or down
shifting it does not knock) the truck also has tons of power and doesnt
skip a beat when driving down the road.

3.4L GM Pontiac... Piston slap???
Ok so I recorded this for smart heads to tell me whether this is the
infamous piston slap or what! Note, there is plenty of oil in the engine.
Notice that around 3:50 the noise completely stops.
