Noisy engine when hot. I suspect the valve gear is not getting enough lubrication. The engine 1.8 APT code. It does not burn any oil and from cold, the engine is quiet after 5-10 seconds. What is the correct oil to use in an engine that has done 140k miles?

Thanks for the info Pete. Is there any way to clear it without dropping the sump? Haynes manual says you need move the engine and some items to get at it.
