hi guys

check and see what oil grade and type you are using i sugest a 10 w 40 grade oil if its cold over there i would run a 5 w 30 grade. i dont think its a blocked lifter but if the oil is too thick it wont go into the lifter.
depends on the oil type as well i had 300v Motul full syn in my kia and changed to ELF partial synthetic last oil change cause i was out of stock of the motul and got a slight noise in the valve train but it is getting better . I am about to change it back to a full synthetic and see how it goes.
My carnival has just turned 20000 km
