as of recently i have noticed a noise coming from the passenger side head, towards the back of the head. I am not sure if its an exhaust leak or ticking lifter. i am stumped because i dont hear it until round 2000 rpm and kinda fades away the higher the rpms. this is the 5.3 motor and i am aware of the notorious lifter tick however i dont think this is part of it. there are no upgrades what so ever and i change oil every 2800 miles to be exact as i do alot of short trips. it is filled with castrol gtx 10w-30. also i have tried Marvel mystery oil And lucas oil stabilizer. no luck yet any help would be appreciated!
