Ticking sound from the engine

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my GMC Yukon was making a ticking sound during idle, then it became faster as the enging rev'd.  two mechanics said it was a lifter and quoted a ton of work to do.  after not driving the car for two days, the ticking has now stopped.  does this mean the lifter is really okay?

You can try this with no promises but add some Lucas Engine Oil Stabilizer to oil had a ticking on my vehicle and that took care of it.
