    Sounds like lifters, have you changed your oil regularly?

    Exactly, there's a sticky lifter , the only way to solve that on the cheaps , is to change oil more often and add an additive like Lucas or
    Oil additive..

    Don't just throw parts at it. Lifters are the most common but doesn't mean that your problem. Take it to have it check first, could also be worm camshaft lobes which would make the lifter make noise as we'll. especially if part are expensive you want to be sure.
