my guess is a hydraulic lash adjuster bled down while sitting. Once the oil pressure was up, the HLA pumped up, and the noise went away.

Time to start a fight - is Marvel Mystery oil snake oil?

I'd rather have a rustbucket than a rice rocket!

No. It has it's uses, but it's not a "fix it in a bottle" either. MMO may help if there is sludge buildup.

Auto-Rx is the best pour and forget snake oil, and seafoam for the quick purge.

Oh, and do not fall for the blend oils which never tell you the ratio of syn to dino, which leads me to believe that the actual percentage of synthetic is very low, maybe 5 or 10 percent. The illusion being that the ratio is 50/50.

The bottle never says how much synthetic is in there because there is no law to stipulate it. We talked about this in a training course one day. In reality, a manufacturer could put one single molecule of synthetic oil in the bottle, and call it a blend. So save your money - buy full synthetic, or plain old dino - but don't waste a penny on so-called "blends."
