You may want to try switching to synthetic oil. It doesn't thicken up as much when it's cold so it flows more rapidly on a cold start. The thermal stability has added advantages when it's hot also. You can extend your oil change intervals so it doesn't cost that much more, makes it more convenient as well. Many manufacturers will not honor warranty without it now, it's pretty much accepted in the industry that it's better for the longevity of your engine.

I had heads replaced on my 2004 Dodge team 1500 5.7 hemi due to valve and spring issue. Then lifters became very noisy so replaced those also. Truck runs ok but lifters are making noise at start up now...


the hydraulics will leak down after the engine has been stopped for a while . The noise on start up will be until the oil again fills the lifters. If it is getting really cold (under 32F of close to 0 c) then you may have to consider a lighter viscosity grade of engine oil (10w-20 or 15w -30) the manual will have the recommended viscosity of oil for cold areas or you can check with the oil catalogue at any auto parts store.

I suspect you have hydraulic lifters and the sludgy oil could plug up your lifters - as well as running that low on oil. Top off your oil and get an oil additive engine cleaner, warm your engine at idle only then change oil when warm. Add 1 quart of marvel mystery oil to the crankcase then top off with high mileage oil, like Valvoline. Run motor at idle only and see if this cures the problem - if not then you may need to remove the intake and replace your lifters, a costly and time consuming job. I would not try driving as you may waste the cylinder head or block by running a stuck lifter. There is also an oil additive specifically for stuck lifter and I think I would add that as well as the Marvel.
I hope the quick fix works for you and good luck!!!

If a cylinder is not firing it could make that noise. Check/replace your plug wires use dielectric grease in the boot connections. Could be a bad plug as well but I would guess a bad plug wire...

Taping noise in engine sounds like a lifter 2004 dakota 3.7 v6


if its a lifter then the only thing you can do is get an oil service and hope this gets rid of it. Alot of cars start with a lifter tap but it should go away wihtin 30 seconds or so.

Rattling during start and ticking then goes away after heats up.


sounds like you have insufficient oil pressure to the lifters but if your engine has alot of miles and wear its possible that may be why its making noise when its cold,it may be costly to repair id suggest a used engine if its worn

Knockin noise in engine


Could be a lifter getting sticky. What engine, amount of mileage, and how often does it get serviced, and type of oil used, can all play a part in that.
