2011 Camaro SS 6.2L v8 6speed automatic transmission- hey Scotty I’ve recently gotten this ticking noise coming from the engine. I’ve talked to a couple other mechanics and they’ve all said it is a collapsed lifter. It seems that in these cars some of the lifters have springs that allow certain cylinders to deactivate to save fuel but the common issue is that they collapse or get stuck. What do you think ?

Not sure if you can hear the audio or not on the video but it’s ticking on the driver side towards the back side of the engine.
