it will be one of the lifters in the 12 rocker arms.

its quite common, things like a change of oil can fix it, or could be down to ware and tare, if its shotch its not hard to replace, just very fiddly and can be time consuming if you dont get it right 1st time, just ask anyone whos done a camchange haha.

it is a nulon product and it is called "Lifter-Free & Tune-Up" will help dissolve and dislodge harmful varnish and carbon deposits that accumulate within hydraulic lifters and cam followers without causing any damage to oil.

No, just take off the inspection cover on the bell housing and tighten the bolts if loose.
