Has anyone had experience with a lifter tick at startup and then quiets down after warming up but is still quietly present. I put seafoam in the oil and then changed my oil after driving it for around 100 miles but its still there. Any other options besides getting another oil change and trying again or possibly getting the valves adjusted.

It sounds like it could possibly be an exhaust leak at the manifold.

These engines are loud to begin with and injectors are loud as well. Find another Volvo and compare is my first suggestion. I ran mine really hard one time shut it off before it totally cooled down and had some tick at startup one time that went away so it does happen. Good luck.

Mine makes the same kinda noise at start up and it’s the exhaust manifold gasket. If I tighten up the bolts it goes away for a few weeks. I’ll try to get a video of it tonight.

Yes second video doesn't sound good gasket leak best case.
The second video is mine and it is a confirmed gasket leak. Have a one piece to fix it just haven’t had the time as of late.
