the '01 is making a slight ticking, knocking, rattling. no codes have been indicated. is there an oil recommended for the 4.4 or is there an additive to quiet the engine? hoping its just a stuck lifter. anything else i should consider?

I also have an 01 740i, mine also makes a ticking noise too. it typically is either two things

1. vanos rattle - search around for this on this forum and google. this is what my rattle is. I am going to try 0 w 40 oil to quiet it up per other owners on another bimmer forum

2. timing chain issues, this is an expensive repair with 15-20 hours labor needed

Ive had my car for 1.5 yrs 12k miles and the rattle hasnt caused any serious issues for me, I am excited to try 0w 40 oil
