Also is worse when I shift out of drive and into neutral.Have tried several 5-20 oils.Noise is same when engine cold or warm,maybee a little worse when warmed up. Seems to to run strong. Any help would be great.
did you think of buying a $10 auto stethoscope before changing the lifters........as mentioned check the cam sensor..........and your injectors.....they are suppose to tick..
