Lift Chatter

Any suggestions I just bought a 2001 Taco with 115000 miles and now that it is getting cold I'm getting lifter chatter I've put in some Rislone treatment but that seemed to have little effect on this issue again suggestions?

Have the valves ever been adjusted? It couldn't hurt.

Take the truck to a Toyota dealer and demand they replace the lifters.

Snap a photo of the mechanic's face and post here.

LOL , I realize there is a hint of sarcasm here

but doesnt the 01 have shim and bucket so there are no "lifters" ?

and shim and buckets just get quieter and tighter with wear

most likely piston slap or it could be a loose mount rattling

I would remove that Rislone hydraulic lifter treatment and get some good quality viscuous synthetic in there like Rotella T-6 15w-40 or similar

That's correct. No hydraulic lifters on a 2001. Most likely is piston slap, and most likely won't hurt anything since it abates after a couple minutes.
My 1993 22RE did the same thing from day one, and so did a '76 Chevy with a 250 inline six. That one slapped for 22 years with no failures...

i always start playing with different weight oils untill the motor quites down. Mines pretty quite on the recomended 5w40. But i recently had the lifter buckets/valve stems grinded down for proper shim clearance. It takes 15 minutes to pull valve cover and start checking clearances. I would check clearance once every 30k cuz its soo dang quick .
If you just wanna check clearances here are the specs...
2RZ/3RZ Valve Clearances: COLD
Intake: .015-.025mm (.006-.010 in.)
Exhaust: .025-.035mm (.010-.014 in.)
Here's a detailed how to on it...
