will going to aheavieroil weight stop my lifts from makin noise
If it makes that much noise, you might want to get the engine looked at, as it could be a mahor problem or the values might just need an adjustment. But 5W-40 semi-synthetic is what is recomended. Going to a thicker oil probably won't help much, IMO. But it is cheap enough to try.
