if not serviced properly it may be old crusty oil build up. there are oil flush kits that could help this unless its really bad or u may just have weak lifters. try the oil flush kit 1st before taking anything apart
we will do this ty my friend..... should i use the filter with the drain back valve, or reg filter? on this truck ?

Filter doesn't matter that much. Yes 1 quart to REPLACE 1 quart of regular oil. Do not overfill.
