Good morning .

I suggest you do a good engine flush first to clean out the lifters .this is what is ticking
in the engine ,very common issue .

Pour a can of engine flush in the engine oil and start the engine and let idle for 15 minutes
the can may say 5 mins but do 15 and don't rev the engine .

After the 25 mins drain and change the engine oil and filter .

Test drive . and let me know if this works or not for further assistance .

8 our of 10 this will help .then after every 3000 miles do this engine flush again .

I find the best flush is from cyclo engine flush..

Kindest regards Greg
