You want the opposite to that mate, you want thinner oil, it will get up and flow through the top end quicker and easier elimating the noise...hopefully. Pop down to halfords and buy some Wynns hydraulic tappet oil, that should quiet it down.

As a loose general rule, 15w/40 for pre 95 cars, 10w/40 for post95 cars.
