I have a 2002 3.0 VLE that's on it's second motor(first had engine sludge). Recently I've been hearing a loud tick noise coming from what seems like the passenger side of the engine. I've been checking oil and it's staying full. Performance is great. No other obvious issues. A buddy thinks it could be a bad lifter. Any ideas what it could be? My little town only has a few shops that will work on Toyotas and they are rough on price. After one engine I don't think I can keep dumping money into this thing...
