Why does my 1998 lexus gs400 engine tick? Lifters? Do I need a valve adjustment? Its a faint tick and I cannot hear it from the cabin, the car idles and drives perfect. V8 dealership told me I need a valve adjustment.$600

Might be just a valve lash adjustment or a valve lifter leakdown problem-for $600 someone can do it for less if its just adjustment needed
