Hydraulic tappets on 3.2 V6....

Good day,

I wonder if anyone could help out with a small problem. On start up, there is a diesel like sound, which after reading numerous posts on here they reckon its most likely the hydraulic tappets.

The car is a 2004 GTV 3.2 V6 24V. Is there anything in particular that could help to limit that sound....?

Thank you in advance.

Had a similar problem on the 166, changed the oil problem solved! I think tappet wear is pretty rare on the V6 even with high miles. What oil spec is in the car?
