Is it constant? Only on cold start? Does it change in noise level with different rpm/temperature?

Ya it stays there even after car has warmed up and it gets faster with rpm's

You might try a heavier grade oil? Or pull valve cover and inspect for visible defects.

What motor do you have just to be exact.
April, 6, 2012 AT 7:09 PM

Has hydr lifters directly under cam lobes on top of valve. A single tap could be something else or just 1 bad lifter.

It is advisable to replace all lash adjusters as you do not want to repeat the job again if a second one fails in the near future, remember that they all have done the same amount of work, so another failure may not be far away.
