Q: is there an adjustment for valve lash. on 1996 Pontiac Firebird

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have a 1996 Firebird with 3800 SeriesII, no add ons. I have an extreme chatter, almost a rattle/ticking under the left bank valve cover. I've tried the oil additives to avoid opening up the top end.No help. Any advise?

Greg is correct...pull valve cover and inspect rockers for loosness...I have seen valve tappets fail also...
Thank you for the response. Is there anything specific to check? Valve spring, seat, rod or lifter?
