Iv had tons of mechanic and tons of dealers master techs tell me that the lifter noise is completely normal on this engine when its 30 degrees at night and I go and cold start it. I wish they would of made a switch that when you turn your key over and the gas pump goes there would be an oil pump that starts to circulate the oil through the engine but one can only wish

The valvetrain makes noise cold because the stems are relatively long and have to expand more to quieten the motor down once warmed up.

More myth............

'You want to use the thinner oils in these engines because of the tight tolerences and passages they have.'

The engines have no really tighter clearances than ones in the '60s did if you look them up. The thinner oils are for mileage ONLY. They drain back in older engines faster and how I've cured startup rattle in cars by thickening up the oil.

Lifter, tappet, follower, bucket, all the same part on these.

They are going to a 16 weight oil in new cars now. You live in a warm climate. I wouldn't want 40 weight in my engine up here in the winter.
