My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. Check and make sure the engine oil level is at the correct level.If this is found to be o.k. this may be an issue with a worn cam shaft or worn lifters needing replaced.In most cases it is the lifters themselves usually at fault needing replaced for this issue here.The engine would need checked into further to see if it needs lifters or any other repairs internally. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete
