SOURCE: Ticking noise in engine
It sounds like the lifters are still sticking. Change your oil/filter then after 500 miles change it again. Since motor oil has a mild detergents, a couple of changes should hopefully remove any buildup from around the lifters. Do not use "motor flush". Even though your engine is fairly new, it may remove too much buildup and flush it onto your crankshaft bearings. You may try some marvel mystery oil also and I've heard seafoam does a good job, if you can find it. Mine started ticking after using one of the super thick oil additives. I'm still trying to flush that stuff out.

First thing to do is change oil and filter. Hopefully it has not done this long and has hard faced the shims. Good luck and have a good day.

Had same problem, i believe in my v6. the oil filled timing belt tensioner has lost oil and now the pully is hitting the tensioner. just fill the tensioner with more oil, in order to do so you have to pull the tensioner out, may have to re time the engine. but there is an allen key screw in the bottem of the tensioner so oil can be loaded.

these are hydraulic and never need adjustment, if this is a new parts install then do this, bring the cylinders up in firing order of engine until the both the valves are closed at each cylinder, then adjust the rockers arms to zero lash, then 1/2 turn tighter, repeat for each cylinder as the valves become closed.

The lifters on your vehicle would not be adjustable, so depending on mileage, a lifter could need replacing. Listen to this sound to determine if it is at engine speed, or at camshaft speed, which is half as fast. If at engine speed, it could be any number of things. If at camshaft speed, it couild be a broken vavle spring, a sticky valve or a noisy lifter.
