Lifter ticking

So I took my car (2000 v6 mustang) into the shop to get a mechanic's opinion of the ticking that I asked on here about awhile ago and he said it was in fact a lifter. He says it just sounds like it's sticking and instead of tearing it apart first that I should try draining 1/2 qt of oil and putting in half a qt of tranny fluid. Drive it for 150 miles and drain the oil and replace it with new oil and see if the noise stops. Has anyone ever heard of heard of this method? If so, does it work or should I try it?

No engine/performance mods (yet). Mach 460 sound system, 2 12" alpine subwoofers in a custom box w/ 1800watt kenwood amplifier. Smoked halo headlights, smoked sequential taillights, black bullitt staggered rims, racing stripes, and plastidipped spoiler. Future exterior mods - Chin spoiler, black fuel door, and demon fender flares (plastidipped).
