These engines are famous for lifter noise after they get older...mine started doing this about three years ago, I added a can of Engine Restore and it went away, still gone after several oil changes.:usa:

You can also try auto tranny oil as it will also clean and free up a stick lifter. My 93 has done that in the past and after the Auto oil it went away and that was about tow years ago now.
By the way my dad is the one who showed me that trick on my first car we bought it cheap because of the tick and fixed it for less then $2.00. Paid $600 for a car they were asking $1,800 for. This was a long time ago now like back in 76 but dad was mechanic his whole life same as his dad so I had my own rivet auto shop teacher LOL.

That be right. You can also drian off about 1 qt now and add it also. That would be what I would do and if it cleans it up and the ticking stops or becomes less loud then your on your way. I normaly only leave it in tell the next oil change then go back to 5 QTs of normal oil at that point.
