Ive got my car up on jackstands in the garage
I go down each weekend to start it, dust it, etc.
when I started it yesterday it seemed quite noisy. there was an unsusally loud noise coming from near the exahust manifolds and in between. so i assume its somethig to do witht the valves.
Im surpised becasue i am so careful with the car. is this something that can happen if its not run all the time? (<-like a daily driver)
is there something I can do? Im not much for putting in additives. oh speaking of that there is a full (when I started) tank of gas with a can of seafoam in it. would that make it run a touch diffrent?
any help is great!

Any hydraulic adjuster that was in the compressed state when you shut the engine off, will take some time to pump back up. I wouldn't worry about light ticking as long as it goes away once the engine has warmed up. Sometimes when I get back from a long trip me E/S is a little noisy the first time I fire it up, but not a problem. Course a low knock would be another matter.
