LIFTERS

2003 Dodge Ram

Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Dodge Ram V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 66215 miles

My truck keeps breaking lifters & my mechanic can't figure out why. I had a ticking & took it in & had one broken lifter & he replaced it. Two weeks later I took it back & had 3 broken lifters so he went ahead & replaced them all. The same night it was ticking again & started idling hard & cutting in & out. Took it back the next day & a lifter had popped off & he said he couldnt find anything deeper wrong & thought it was b/c I was using 10w30 oil when truck called for 5w30. He changed the oil & sent me home. Two days later it is doing the same thing. What keeps causing the lifters to break?
