    Noisy hydraulic tappets - can an oil change fix the problem?

    I currently have a 2.5TDI AFB with 300 000 km on board and I use 15w-40 Mobil oil. Sometimes I can hear the tappets clicking, but as far as I'm concerned it's quite random.

    Can an oil change fix my problem? Should I put thicker or thinner oil?
