M52 lifter noise!!

Hey guys, i searched many forums but still no clear answer, So im debating a few options

I noticed that my lifters were getting a bit noisy..

from my research i got 3 things that was most popular...

!) thicker oil... (but its almost winter and my cars a rust bucket anyways so imma drive it )

2) lucas oil stabilizer i hear good things...

3) this was a old hot rod guy that told me to put 1/3 L of ATF and leave the car running for 30 mins then do an oil change...

And i noticed the problem when i was using mobil1 (0w40) synthetic oil and when i tried the bmw synthetic oil (5w30) as well..
And i dont burn any oil but i always check it and its always full!
