Reslone will only delay the inevitable. once you've started down the road of excessive wear there's no tuning back short of replacing the offending part. The tapping noise will probably be hydraulic lifters going solid. Unless your in a position to be able to tear the engine down reslone or a similar product is your best bet . But again its only delaying the inevitable. And it is very important to be regular with oil changes and not to run youself low on oil again , next time you probably wont hear tapping
