Question Loose Rockers? Enigne Clatter

I have a 1992 1.8 SOHC Mits eclipse. I noticed about a week ago my car slowly began to clatter in the valve area. I figured, prolly oiling problem, ill put some more in when i get home. But on the way home it got a lot louder, slowly increasingly lossed power, and eventually it stalled. (Its a standard) I was slowing to a stop and it stalled while i was slowing down. Well i had been watching my gauges, and oil pressure was good, so was temp. But after i pulled it off on the side of the road, it was incredibly hot, and i had to wait about 20 min for it to cool down b4 i could start it again, but with that in mind, i still towed it home. The clatter is coming from every valve and it is definatly coming from the valve cover, not the pistons. There are also extremely fine metal shavings in my oil, and it is incredibly thin. I have tried 3 types, and it goes in thick, and 20 minutes after runnin, it become almost water thin. There is no water in it however. My rocker arms seem loose, and they dont fit snug againts the valve stems. the rest fine on the cam, but there is a small gap between the other end and the valvestems. I pulled these off, and a spring loaded something came out of the valves (sorry dont know name) so i think it was touching the valves, but still if u rock the rockers u can hear a light tap when they hit the valve. My bolts are all tight, and when i tried to move the cam, nothing happened so its snug also. Someone please help, becuz i have put so much work into this car, id hate to have to throw it out for this stupid problem. Thanks

You're so right. How did I forget that my entire existence is only to serve self centered little pricks like you. I'm thinking your problem is that you're not smart enough to get a real job so you joined the Army.

Yep, you showed us your vast automotive knowledge with your first post. I HOPE you know more about the AH-64's than you do your car. My guess is that you don't touch a chopper, you're probably a cook or an MP.

Why do you keep responding if you don't like my attitude. Bottom line sonny is I'm the person most likely to answer your question but now you've alienated me. Would you like to keep going or do you want to start over? The choice is yours.
