Answers :

Sounds like the lifters are ticking. Try this - go get the proper oil and filter to do an oil change. Also buy some Seafoam (available at the parts stores as well). Pour half the bottle into your oil, and drive for about 50 miles. Then change the oil and filter. Seafoam has worked great for me in the past on many different cars, and it can help break up deposits and sludge in your engine, which may be blocking the oil from reaching the lifters.

You can put the other half of the bottle of Seafoam into your gas tank and allow it to de-resin your fuel system.
Check your oil........ it sounds like a lifter in the top of the engine. if you let it go to far you might take the chance of having a rod thrown through your engine.
