Replaced head gasket, timing belt, and water pump about 3 months ago. I also switched to synthetic oil around the same time. I've been having a ticking sound for a little bit now, but as of recently I've been getting this squeaking, squealing noise and the knocking as well. I'm thinking valves. Anyone have any ideas?

This is a video I did for a project. In this video you see us replacing
seals and it also covers other basics like valve spring compression and
lubing your cylinder head.

Chevy Vortec lifter & valve tap how to repair it
this video has info on how to fix a severe valve tap or sticky lifter using
1 quart of automatic transmission fluid with 4 quarts of oil. the trans
fluid is a high detergent that loosens up sludge build up in a motor from
lack of oil changes, you will be amazed at what pouring 1 quart of trans
fluid in a neglected motor can do. the truck in this video got a double
treatment and now runs smooth with no taps and the check engine light went
out as soon as I started it. also after the second treatment I changed the
oil & filter and the clumps of sludge that were left in it broke down into
the oil from the trans fluid and it flushed it out. I
I realize I bash fram oil filters in this video and any filter wouldnt have
helped in this case because the truck was so neglected any filter would
have pluged up. howerver,,, Fram in my opinion is cheap crap.and over the
years of having hundreads of cars I can honestly say if you have 2
identical engines 1 using Fram the other using Wix or Napa the Fram motor
will die prematurely due to lack of filtering.
3.4l gm infamous engine ticking, noise

Subaru Head gasket installation instructions
Get a torque wrench on Amazon
Subaru Head gasket installation instructions for putting your new head
gaskets on. Another thing people will usually replace at the same time is
the head bolts. I recommend doing this if there has been severe warping of
the heads due to severe overheating. Often times the original lead based
gasket fails due to age/heat cycles/expansion and the bolts are fine. In
this case it's fine to clean the old ones with a wire brush and dip the
tips in motor oil and re use them.

5th Gen Honda Prelude Whining Noise, Oil pump?
My 98 Honda Prelude...
My car started to give me the Oil Flickering Light Every time I would come
to a stop sign or stop light or while idle. Revving the engine made the
light go away but as soon as i came to a stop it flickered back on rapidly.
The oil while fine on the dip stick....
i changed oil to make sure of everything, even filter.
Problem got worse, after a day the light came back flickering but it
brought along a hard whining noise that you hear now in this video
COULD IT BE THE OIL PUMP GIVING OUT????
The Noise is not coming from any Power Steering, Any Pully, Timing Belt or
Belt Tension. I Jacked up the car And Started hearing the noise coming
within the Oil Pan! WTF!
What do you guys think it is at your 100% positivity.
Oil Pump Goes For nearly 200 bills, so before buying something that it
could't be I'd like your Opinions. TY!
Dayco - Diagnosing Serpentine Belt Noise
A noisy serpentine belt does not always mean the belt is the cause of the
noise as misalignment and tension can both create problems in the drive
belt system. In this video, we diagnose the cause of a new belt making
noise on cold, wet mornings, an issue that happens often when initially
starting the vehicle in these conditions.
Honda Prelude - Engine Noise
The hissing sound is the intake suction, but I hear a few other things. The
sound has been there for almost 2 years, even after the head was rebuilt.
■ I'm thinking Rod Knock?
-But wouldn't the bearings have failed a year ago?
■ Piston Slap?
-Just a guess
■ Timing Belt Tensioner failing?
-If it's this, then I'll do the H23 manual tensioner conversion
EDIT 6/2/12: Ended up converting to H23 timing belt tensioner. Other
"Tractor" noise was probably the crank pulley wobbling, not the rod knock/
piston slap. Whole motor was just swapped out last month.
