Bad rings will not cause oil to pool up above the spark plugs. When you removed the plug, the oil filled into the cylinder. It's just the valve cover gasket.
The lifters are a solid bucket type, so there is no adjustment available. I'd recommend an oil change and the use a of a good filter. Some of the crappy ones can inhibit pressure and cause upper end noise.
Since there is very little to no vacuum on acceleration, the noise is not a vacuum leak.
Your fuel pump sounds like it could be a little louder than it should be, however you can faintly feel/hear it. I would keep an eye on it anyway. Some pumps get pretty loud when they're about to fail.

|Mikehinkle||I hear it come on, but I can also lightly feel it in the seat when it turns on. I do not think the fuel pump is the source of my noise. It's coming from the passenger side of the engine bay and only during accel. Considering the vacuum leak. I'm sure these cars have pcv systems? If so does it have a saip? I know the saip cuts off after warm up but the noise seems to cease when the car is at normal operating tempeture. I don't know, could be a lot of things.|

|FocusRus||Well, you should hear it cycle......you know, you might be right. That my be the source of the sound you're hearing.|

|Mikehinkle||Should I hear the fuel pump decently loud when I turn the key to on?|
|03-27-2013 06:24 PM|
|FocusRus||In that case ( I only hear it when I accelerate ), make sure the airbox and all hoses to it are tight.|

Going to have the compression checked eventually. Anyone have a vacuum line diagram? I will go through and check all the lines. I only hear it when I accelerate tho not when it's idling. I need to get a manual on the car.
Also, what should I typically be looking for that usually goes out or needs replaced around 160k?
