You say you're not sure where the hiss or other noises are coming from. Do yourself a favor and buy an automotive stethoscope - they are cheap and really good. start the car and start probing around with the stethoscope - when you come close to the noise it will jump out at you. If you want to know if it is the lifters - take off the oil filler cap from the valve cover and put the stethoscope near the opening - if the ticking is coming from there - you will hear it. I kick myself for all the times I guessed at what or where the noises came from instead of using this excellent inexpensive troubleshooting tool. Find out where the noises are coming from and we can zero in on the cause.
