MITSUBISHI LANCER EVOLUTION TICKING PROBLEM

1998 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution • 12,100 miles

Hi, I have recently had a ticking noise in my 4g63 engine I did an oil change and used slightly thinner oil 10w-50w fully synthetic to maybe try stop the issue. It half worked the ticking comes and goes sometimes its there during cold starts and occasionally not, just comes and goes now again generally more after a burst of higher rpm. Not sure what I should do other than spending the $ id sooner be able to do it myself any sugestions?
Thanks

Sounds like a lifter sticking. Changing the oil is not an instant cure. It will need time to try and release it. If not, then it will have to be replaced.
