Which is the best oil additive for a noisy engine?

How can I get rid of the lifter noise?
Allow the engine to idle for 20 minutes, repeating the lifter pump-up procedure in step three about once every three minutes. Drain the oil, unscrew the old filter from the block, replace it with a new one and re-fill the engine with the recommended oil.
