Lifters on an LS generally tend to start getting pretty tired and sloppy from around 200,000 onwards.My car has done 417000 K My. Loud ticking Notice sounds like Tappets or like a Diesel Engine. .when engine gets Hot after 20 minutes running The noise is not as loud. What's your opinion please
A new set of lifters is probably the only fix, you could try a bottle of lifter freeup in the oil but I'm not confident at that milage it will do much but worth a shot.
The fact that it gets quieter as it gets hot is a good sign that it's not a worn engine/bearing clearance issue.
