If its when you flushed the engine oil it has to be down to oil not getting through to the tappets correctly. You may have dis-lodged some carbonated oil and partually blocked a oil gallery. Either that or the oil you are now running is too thin therefore not building enough oil pressure.
Do you have an oil pressure gauge fitted and if so is it reading the correct oil pressure ?
Consider using a thicker engine oil if the pressure is down or a reputable oil additave to help boost the oil pressure up.
I presume you did change the oil filter when you changed the oil ?
