1989 190E 2.6 sounds like a diesel

<br>
1989 190e 2.6 with 120,432 miles and burning oil strong <br>
<br>
Let me describe the symptoms: <br>
<br>
sound made during acceleration from 15mph to 38 mph <br>
<br>
light or heavy acceleration <br>
<br>
goes away if let off accelerator or pass 38mph <br>
<br>
the car sounds like a diesel, sound appears to be coming from the engine bay. <br>
<br>
that's the best description i've come up with that offers the most info. I know it's hard to diagnose sounds on cars without actually hearing them, but i'm trying to get a starting point. at first i thought the timing chain might need adjustment, but it only makes the sound during that interval and not all the time, not sure if that could still be a possibility. It's going to my mechanic on friday. Any input would be great.<br>
