Default 96 2.2L vavle ticking???

You guys know how out cars will tick a bit if they are low on oil??? Well, mine does and lately it has been ticking so I thought, oh, I'll give it some oil, well it's full and it's still ticking, my dad (subaru mechanic for about 10 years) said it probably just needs a valve adjustment. I called the service manager at my local dealer (good friend of mine) and he said the 2.2 has hydralic lifters, so they can't be adjusted??? Does that mean it's just gonna have to be replace or should I just drive her into the ground as an excuse to buy me a 05 Legacy GT. BTW, she's got 208,xxx miles on her.

There ya go I had better luck keeping the tick away when I ran 10w-40. But the biggest thing is just keeping the oil levels good.

I had a ticking coming from my engine, a 95 2.2 with under 130,000. I've always used 5/30 oil, In march I stopped putting in 93 oct, and I havn't heard a ticking since. I'm not sure why it did but it did. I've always used 5/30 oil

I have a 96 ej22 with hydraulic lifters. When I opened the cover one of the lash adjusters was missing.

My question is...I have an extra (newer...1997) parts motor which is equipped with solid adjusters...would it make sense to swap the entire rocker assembly?
