Could be sticky lifters, you could try a oil additive to help remove varnish, clean lifters. Otherwise then you pull the valve cover off and see if there is a problem.

Also, make sure it is not a exhaust leak from the exhaust manifold.

Automatic transmission fluid added to engine oil "1/2 quart " sometimes frees sticky lifters
