Hi welcome to will answer your question the best I can,

Liz this sounds like your automatic valve adjusters , what i suggest you do first which is normally the case, is check your oil level , as when the level gets too low the lash adjusted cannot pump up, so check this first and top up if needed and if the level is ok please get back to me.

Kind regards Greg.
