Look away from the oil. You most likely have a problem with fuel ignition or perhapse a head gasket gone out. Start with new plugs, maybe coils. and if that isn't it you may have a head gasket gone. I just did the head gaskets on my libby and before i did, it was chugging like a diesel.

My car is ticking. Sounds like its coming from the valve cover gasket.

put a good squirt of wahing up liquid into engine oil and half litre of diesel ,then run a while say 300 miles or so then change oil and use turbo diesel engine oil ,now if noise stops then just change oil every 6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change.but if noise persists then repeat with washing up liquid and diesel and leave for a longer period ,your hydraulic tappets are gummed up from not changing the oil regular ,never mind these so called long life oils ---this is what happens when oil is not changed regular

hi i presume you changed the oil and filter when you did the head if so it may be the wrong rating as if i got it corect it sounds like a diesel when you start it after its been left the last thing to get oil is going to the camshaft and rockers so if the noise goes once it has been run for a minute or so and sounds ok then using a oil that is recomended by the manafacturer unless its done a high mileage then use a higher mileage oil with an oil additive STP something like it as what is proberly happening the oil running back into the sump and having to be pumped back all the way to the head . yates210456
