I would try adding a lifter quiet supstance such as nulon lifter quiet, may or may not be available in your country,
Or try heading to a local auto store and look for a reputable brand name products, ie injector clean/ carby clean /lifter quiet/worn engine treatment.
Below i have listed common problems related to yours that might be worth checking.
Sometimes the oil that you may of put in may not be thick enough hence why youre getting more noise.
it could mean yes that a lifter or shim is loose and needs adjustment,
injector noise from fuel injectors if they get clogged up they tick loudly.
Dirty fuel causing injector noise
Low oil or incorrect oil level as in over full.
Incorrect oil specification/ wrong Viscosity or grade.
Leak or low oil presssure could be a blockage somewhere stopping oil circulating
Worn oil pump not correctly pumping enough oil.
Oil line blockage insufficent oil getting up to the lifters
It coudl even be driveline related as in a C.V. joint coudl be loose/worn and ticking.
Ive even seen cars where wire has been entwined aroudn the driveshaft and taps against the floor/wall
Coudl be a fan if your fan runs off the engine rather then electric ticking against the houseing or it could also be a belt or bearing in one of you accesories ie a bearing in the aircondition clutch tha tmay be loose and is ticking.
However start small and go from the cheapest option up to the dearest.
Make sure you have a good listen while its running with the bonnet up and go through to try and find the source of the sound.
Usually this is what the mechanics would- do anyway untill they find the problem.
Hoipefully this helps so you dont have to take it to the shop.

No. The valves are hydraulic. Pour about a coke tin amount of diesl in with the engine oil. Run the enginr to normal teperature. Drain the oil and refill with new oil. It sounds like a lazy or blocked follower. Once you do this it should disappear.

I am not an expert on the these engines but the 94 galant (in the USA) had a 4g64 engine (2.4 inline 4 cyl fuel injected). On the 4g64 engine the valves are hydrolic meaning there is no manual adjustment. YOur mechanic made a mistake in that the valve lash adjusters should have been reinstalled back in their original position. Being that was not done there is not much you can do other than replace them with new ones. By the way the valve lash adjusters should be partialy filled with oil so there is little or no plunger action when the adjuster is depressed. Your mechanic should have placed them in a can of clean engine oil and depressed the plunger on the valve lash adjusters to cause them to fill with oil. If you can still depress the adjusted after it is filled with oil then it is defective. By the way, this is not an unusual problem as many high mileage Galants make a fair bit of valve noise. You can get more details from a Haynes manual (about $20 at autozone)

SOURCE: I have an 2001 mitsubishi
It is a lifter ticking. They are called hydraulic lifters. They have a spring inside them, when the car is running it builds oil pressure. The oil pressure fills the lifter which gives the lifter a cushion so to speak. When a lifter is worn out it will not hold oil pressure as well as it use to. So I would say it is a lifter ticking. Nothing to be real concerned about. I had an old 6 cylinder that all of the lifters ticked in it and it ran forever. Probably still running somewhere! So it is not really a concern. If you want to you could run 10w40 oil in it, which is a little thicker. This may help.
