check your oil - the oil has to get to the top of the engine to reach the tappets, if its low on oil it doesnt make it!

If the noise goes away when the engine is warm, then is more than likely just your oil level.

More likely due to the oil thinning tbh :)

its got worse since an oil change from kiwk fit. They used mobile 1 S i think.

The oil on the dipstick is just under the max indicater.

Does oil have to be topped up stone cold?

depends on the viscocity of the oil they used

anwthing thinner than 1040 can cbe to thin for the k series, if the used fully synthetic they should use 1540
