High speed chatter under load

This noise happens when I'm going over 60 and under load, like going up a hill. This chatter/tapping noise can be made worse when I press on the gas pedal, I can play with it, give it gas - louder, let up on it - it stops. If I push hard on the gas pedal the noise gets louder and then clunks and is gone til next hill. No issues under 60 mph

@ John I would say it is probley this cheap gas we are getting these day and you may want to see about getting the valves adjusted. Milage is a big thing it could even be the timing chain and gears having slack in them. good luck
