Hi,

I have 2.5TDI R5 2004 Touareg, Mileage 355 000km. After engine oil change I drove about 500km. Next time when I started the car, it started ticking "tick tick tick". One strange thing is, when coolant and oil warm up and after that when you accelerate, the noise is gone.

VAG - COM
I connected vagcom and checked for any faults, only fault was Mass air flow sensor - signal too low.

SOUND
You can hear the ticking in this video:
1:52

WHAT MECHANIC SAID
Local mechanic said that lifters are jammed and need to be replaced + new camshaft.

DIY
I found great DIY from here Camshaft lobe wear inspection and replacement on TDI PD engine | VW TDI forum, Audi, Porsche, and Chevy Cruze diesel forum
It seems to be pretty mid-hard to do.

The question is do I have any other options? Is new oil change gonna help anything? Any other ideas?
