Default lifter tic on 98 sle 3800

:( I have only 149k miles and the car runs and looks like it has 20k miles except for one thing,a noisy lifter. I tried Rislone but no god. Any ideas or will it hurt anything to just let it tic ? It seems to be from the rear bank of cyls. Its not an injector
Thx

Something that you would recommend before an oil change?
How much would you put in?
