Question about 1996 Volvo 850
Sounds like a lifter noise or valves. Try adjusting the valves first if you don't have a lot of miles on the car since valve job, adjustment is probably all that will be needed. The valves just seated a little more and need readjusted. Good Luck!! This should solve the noise.

Not sure what a rythujatic sound is...your car has hydrolic lifters, they can make a clacking noise if they are not pumping up. Oil makes them pump up, The valve replacement should not have changed the sound.Are all the other valves properly seating? Did you do the change or did a repair facility do it? If done by a pro, they should be held accountable for the sound. If the lifters aren't properly pumped, it will cause a valve lash and subsequent noise... Will not necessarily cause a noticabel performance problem but a clack.
