    This is a common problem with this engine. It is operating as designed and nothing can be done to repair this issue. The lifters are the culprits and even replacing them will not eliminate the problem for very long. I have heard many complaints on this and there are no bulletins fromthe manufacturer that I can find. You can try a slightly heavier weight oil to reduce the noise, but there is no permanent cure that I know of. Good luck!
