Your lifters have become clogged over the years. Its only after the oil warms up and thins out does it allow oil to "pump up" the lifters. That's why it goes quiet after 5 min. There are several different brands of additives on the market that can fix this problem ,unless you have a more serious mechanical problem, which I doubt.Check your local auto parts store for the additive. Just add it to your oil and "wham!" problem solved. Good Luck!

That depends on when was the last time the car was serviced and how many miles its done since the last service.
If its a high milage car then having the valves set should clear up the misfire and the lifter tick.

What you want to do is find a shop that sells BG products. Ask them for part number 210 (engine flush) & part number 110 (MOA ((motor oil additive)) ) . First install the oil flush and moa into your oil filler and run motor for 30 min AT IDLE. Now drain the oil from the crank case and install new filter and castrol 5w30 non synthetic oil. Then run the motor for 15 minutes AT IDLE. Now drain that oil and install new filter. Now goto part store and get MOBIL 1 0w30 and preferably a factory GM oil filter. Install the oil and filter and put one more can of MOA into crankcase. We do this service at our shop ($250). You can do it for about $70. We suggest always using mobile 1 , it is a far superior product. The 0w40 takes no time to get to the lifter upon start up since its so light. once you reach operating temp the viscosity is factory...good luck
