Hydraulic lifter fix

Hey guys, do you think this valve lifter treatment fluid would be suitable for a rav4.1? Hydraulic Valve Lifter Noisy FOR Toyota RAV4 | eBay
Has anyone got experience in cleaning/replacing the valve lifters?
Thanks

Also I am not certain that the rav4.1 uses hydraulic lifters for the valve clearance, if not feel free to tell me

I do not think the Toyota cars use hydraulic lifters at all, The lifters are solid.

Anyhow if you have noisy lifters try to use Marvel mystery oil if you have it locally. Here in the US it sells for $3.99/Qt.

Good luck.
