After doing some reading and watching a YouTube video featuring a lifter Tick it is definitely the same noise...

Many guys talk about using a heavier oil to keep the pressure up. I did an oil change and put 5w30 in there, not sure if I noticed the noise then or not but it seems to have nothing to do with my spark plug change.

Another guy was talking about the upper tensioner wearing down and this causing the internal oil leak with the ticking noise. The tensioner is a $50 part.

Anyone have an idea of how hard that is to change???
