Question about 1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata
Lifter make noise after 22 degree or hotter weather.
Check the viscosity of the oil you are using and move up to 30w -50 for the ambient temperature
Mazda engines use a shaft to support the rocker arms and these are prone to wearing out on the under side of the rockers
I would suggest that you have an accredited service shop with experience on you car to check the play in the rocker arms / bushes and shaftys.
