SOURCE: Lifters knocking..
You might want to try an old trick that I have use twice in life but it accomplished the goal without problem.
When you are due for an oil change, preferably with the oil level somewhat low (don't overfill), add a quart of kerosene to the crankcase and let the engine idle for 20-30 minutes; do NOT drive it or race the engine since the kerosene is a lousy lubricant and you want it to function only as a solvent for the possible buildup of sticky crud that might be impeding things.
Drain the crankcase completely, allowing the thing to drip for an hour to get the majority of the oil-kerosene mix out of the engine and then fill 'er up with fresh oil.
If you decide to try this, please post back to this thread so hat others might benefit from your experience.

What motor do you have? The V8, you can remove just the intake manifold and the valve covers/rocker arms to remove the lifter. The V6, I believe you need to remove the head to access the lifters.

Before adjusting the valves, 1. check the oil level 2. use an engine cleaner that you add to the oil (berryman's or equivalent) and run thru the engine for 30 minutes 3. change oil and filter 4 run and check for tappet noise. This may improve things without opening things up.

Yes, you can have just a lifter replaced, but it could be other parts as well...like a valve, rocker, or cam shaft. The valve cover needs to come off for a better inspection.

Fig. Fig. 6: Remove the spark plug wire separators from the valve cover
Fig. Fig. 7: Compress the engine air cleaner-to-valve cover hose clamp with pliers, and slide the clamp back ...
Fig. Fig. 8: ... then disconnect the hose from the valve cover
Fig. Fig. 9: Unfasten the valve cover retainers and remove the valve cover-2.0L SOHC engine
If removing more than one valve lifter (tappet), mark the lifters and their locations as they must be installed in their original bores.
