Sure guess is that its from inside the engine when you change back to thin oil the sound you missed will be back...we usually do that jugaad or frugal innovation  masking trick when the customer who brought in the car 100% will not go for dismantle of engine or will say that lovely tale of the car being sold or in process of being sold or he has to return the car in question to someone they borrowed it from...and that also today itself....just removed the old oil toss in 20w50 mineral oil and toss in some thick oil also according to the size of engine and the level of sound....phoof the sound is vanished the guy is happy and off he goes to hang the bell on someone else neck....have killed tensioners sound in a maxima and bearings sound in a Mazda yaris and corolla Camry lc

Sad to hear this to be honest from a professional and trustworthy mechanic. As a true professional you should never do this because the damage caused by wrong oil will multi-fold the repair bill in a very short run. It's not a permanent fix, instead you should always insist on repair immediately - stitch in time will save nine.
