This loud ticking on the top is new. Imminent demise? Thanks

Maybe not so new, but has gotten much much louder doing it on warm engine now. 1zz-fe (02 Avensis, not the one in the picture), about 1y/10k miles ago not long after getting this car, sludge has blocked the oil pump pickup, car started shaking badly, restart it OK but I had no alternative but to continue driving 200 more miles (it happened once again on my way back). Once home, dropped pan and cleaned, been changing oil many times since, drives well, burns oil no more than 1 qt/1k.

hard to say, sometimes they can go quite a while and still actually run

Oil is new, been changing it a lot. IF HEAD DAMAGE how much longer before it dies?

valves sound horrible. Have their adjustments checked, and i would advise changing the engine oil and filter a LOT more frequently and pray internal head damage has not occurred already

Aaron, it's got only 80k miles

sounds like it just might be the fuel injectors and it sounds a little loud you might want to replace them
