after the newer vehicles sit a little bit the oil drains back down instead of sitting in the motor the tap u here is your lifters it is hurting nothing so don't worry about it.

Try installing a K&N or Napa Gold oil filter, these have an anti drainback valve in the filter. This helped on my 99' 360.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am. I recently had my oil changed and noticed the change oil light stayed on. To get it off I had to turn the key to the on / run position, but I did not start it. Then I had to push the gas pedal to the floor three times within 5 seconds. The change oil light went off after a few seconds. I turned the car off. I then restarted the car and the change oil light did not stay on, it went off with all the rest of the lights that come on when you first start your car.
