Quick question,does the motor get quiter as the valve clearance needs doing or makes or tappet noise? i have been told quiter

The "sonic check" is a new one on me and I've been a diesel mechanic for 39 years, it sounds like somebodies creative "bullshit baffles brains" terminology to confuse a customer asking a legitimate question.
It's important to keep valve clearances in spec. as this affects valve timing and in turn, performance.
