I talked to a guy about my lifters and he said that i should put a bottle of atf transmission oil in with the engine oil. Aka the stuff my rover manual says to use as power steering fluid.. then drive it on the interstate for ten minutes and maybe that will let it loose. Has anyone heard of this before?
Thanks

Yes I have done this, The old guys (My Dad used to do this) to clean out internals.
1. I would say 10 miles though at least
2. Then flush with fresh cheep Oil for 50 or so miles
3. Then drain then put in the normal oil.

do step 2 to 3 if lifter does release.

Opps sorry forgot that, yes you will have to change that as well.

You will need 2 filter changes.

Reason: is that ATF "could" damage a Oil Filter that's why i say "two" just to be safe side that all the ATF fluid is out of the system.

If you want to throw your money away, please just send me a check :)

No sense in pouring good or expensive oil into the recycle jug at wherever your drop your oil off. On the last oil change, if you prefer synthetic, use it then.
