Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Engine ticks when accelerating above 3 grand, and also when slowing down sometimes. the car has 114k and I always keep the oil changed. The last oil change I used some lucas which helped for about 1500 miles then the ticking resumed. I was thinking maybe a lifter or something in the valve train. But im not for sure.
