Post noisy lifters

When ever I start my 1996 Dodge V6, The lifters clatter until the oil pressure comes up, 3 to 5 seconds. What is causing this. I was under the impression that the oil filter had a check valve in it to prevent this. I have changed the filter tree times since this started. If the lifters don't have any oil pressure, I am sure the main and rod bearings are suffering also.

I don't know much about hydraulic lifters since none of my engines have them, but I think that is normal until they pump up....

How many miles does it have? Did it start doing this all of a sudden? It might be time for a little heavier weight oil.
