Thanks Gilly.

Is it something I can correct, or should I wait a day and let the mechanic have a look? (Because it is an engine issue, I am inclined to err on the side of caution and look, but not touch.)

Based on its past behavior, and after reading the threads here, it sounds very much like a lifter, but who can be sure?

What's a hydraulic compensator? Is that another term for hydraulic lifter?
