Hi there, thanks for writing in.

Your particular year and model of Subaru does not need to have the valves adjusted. It uses hydraulic lifters that are self adjusting. If there is a ticking noise, it could be that one of the hydraulic lifters has failed, causing it to become noisy. I would suggest having the noise professionally diagnosed by a qualified technician, such as one available from YourMechanic.
