My car has a lifter that is a little lazy. If you open the hood and hear the noise, slowly push on the throttle, if it begins to go away keep pushing until about 3,000 RPM's and it should disappear completely. It is not a big deal to changethe lifter itself, and I do not know how much the lifters are, the problem is figuring out which one it is, so you generally have to replace all of them. Hope its the oil,
