Frist Problem with My Cobalt and Its Not Good

ok so i did a oil change to my 09 cobalt lt changed it with rp 5w30 and i got home from work that morning [work nights] amd i hear my motor making a ticking noise but its like ticking but with liquid there so it not a full metal on metal tick i guess its hard to explane how it sounds. i went up to advanced and i told them i used rp 5w30 and they think its something mechanicly wrong with my car and they said sometimes deals put heavyer weight oil in motors to cover up sounds

Heavier oils?? Lol

I bet it's the ticking After the car is turned off. That's normal.

When does it tick? Is it only at idle and goes away when you drive?

Cesar, i've missed you.

To the OP...your description is quite vague. And punctuation helps the reader believe you are educated, and spares us all a headache. If you can give us a better description of the problem I'm sure we can give you more insight as to what is causing the sound.
