It would be an issue with the lifter not getting oil has the oil pressure been checked ?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no oil pressure has not been checked how do you check the oil pressure
Expert:  Tom replied 7 years ago.
Need to hook up an oil pressure gauge and see if the pressure is within specs. If pressure is good then it's either blocked oil passages or a clogged oil pick up behind the oil pan causing this issue. These are the most common issues and need to be checked next. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
