Could be that your oil pump is clogged. your ticking it probably your valves starving for oil. Alot of times your oil will be fine but your oil pump will get clogged and cause the iol to take time to get to rhe valves

My 97 plymouth voyager makes a ticking noise when it is cold but when it is warm the ticking noise goes away what would cuase this?


Usually a ticking from the engine is caused by oil not coating the tappets. Tappets are the rods that control the intake and exhaust valves. Once the engine warms up oil is circulated to those parts and the ticking stops.
Mopar is famous for that
