Did you set the valve clearance after fitting the lifters or did you just tighten all the rockers down
if that is the case the valve springs are bottoming out

Make sure the rocker arm is torqued to the proper specifications. (torque specifications: torque to 11 lb.ft, then tighten the bolt an additional 90 degrees)

Having a "clicking" sound coming from engine, or dull "thumping"

could be anything from belt noise to lifter tick to rod knock..lifter tick is under the valve covers..rod knock sounds like hitting the block with a hammer..if its rod knock see what your oil pressure is.. should be around 30 to 45 psi cold..warm will be as low as 15..depending on oil type..most lifters can be adjusted by removing the cover and doing adjusting depending on the vehicle..good luck

I have a 1999 chevy malibu with knocking noise ina 3.1l v6 motor.

Sounds like you didn't put the pushrods back in the proper locations. There are two different lengths in this engine and you may have one backwards

1996 chevy s10 4.3 vortex lifters knocking at start up but goes away after 10 minutes idling. changed oil and filter oil pump reads 58-60psi at idle and seems to be working.

High milage? Try engine cleaner, run for couple hundred miles and then use an additive like Restore. If it's just dirt this may help. Make sure you are using the correct viscosity oil for winter temps. If it's from wear only parts replacement will fix it.
