Post Odd noise from my SVX

For the past couple weeks I've noticed a strange sound from my engine. Hard to describe, but essentially a distinctly irregular semi-loud sputtering/knocking after the car has run for a while. Also this occurs only when it's idling. Have no idea what it is. The sound goes away upon the slighest pressure on the accelerator, but comes back immediately when I release the accelerator. Somebody suggested the lifters, another suggested that I add an oil additive, which I did yesterday. Does anyone have any suggestion as to what this could be? And should I be worried? It's been perfect for the last six months, since I bought the car. Thanks for your help!

Thanks Vern. I'll check the ingredients of the additive, which was Valvoline. Also any idea how much changing the lifters will cost?
Much appreciated.
