If its a ticking when you start from cold and goes away soon after start as the engine warms up it is most likely a crack in your exhaust manifold ( you may call it a header in the us) as it is getting the hot exhaust straight from the cylinder it heats up very quickly and closes the crack stopping the ticking. you should be able to get a nechanic to run a weld along the crack easily enough depending on where it is.

Loud ticking noise in 2004 Buick century


The ticking is probably a damaged lifter, hard to say exactly without hearing it. If you hired a qualified automotive shop to do your oil change and they didn't put enough oil in your vehicle they would have some liability. Your paper work should state the amount of oil put in the engine. Cross reference that with your manual

When you turn the key and it makes the tick, does it ever turn over at all? If not and it only ticks then it is most likely your starter. You can also test your battery at a local autozone, oreilley, napa, etc. and they can tell you if the battery is the problem. Also if you remove the starter they can typically test them also if you desire.

Rapping/ticking sound in my 2001 Chevy tracker engine.


does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should
