usually takes awhile for it to go away it will be still there after the oil change but will be gone soon.

did the same on mine after a head off if u soak them in oil while the head is off its not so bad but they just need a little more oil thought them. i put 2 new ones in there and takes about a hour of driving for them to stop the noise i was worried i have to replace the lot but the noise is gone now

i havnt put any new ones in do u think the noise will still go away also do u have to take the whole head off to replace them or can u do just by taking the rocker cover off and how much did you pay for two new tappets?
