An engine that has had long intervals between oil changes and lots of miles, can easily develop stuck hydraulic lifters. This can be a loud clicking/ticking noise at the top of the motor.Try this: Change the oil and subsitute one can of transmission fluid for engine oil then change it at 1000 miles or less . It make take a few changes but if it is a lifter ( most common problem) it should improve. I hope this helps you. Mark

This anti-knocking agent therefore came into widespread use in petroleum, but use of this chemical began to be phased out after the toxicity of lead became known. Thus other antiknock agents used instead of tetraethyllead are: ferrocene, iron pentacarbonyl, toluene, MMT (an organomagnesium compound) and several others.
