Many older vehicles will do this when first started. If yours didn't do it before changing the oil but does now you may want to replace the oil filter with another or better quality one. Sometimes oil filters do their job too well and restrict oil flow.

SOURCE: 2002 buick century has a ticking sound when first cranked goes away in a minute or two full of oil

I have had a simillar problem in the past. It may very well be your lifters. A minute or two after cranking the engine, oil lubricates them and they get quieter. Buy a bottle of No-Smoke from Autozone. It is very thick and will temporarily help to silence the problem. You wil have to adress the expensive issue sonner than later. In some instances, a person will use that product to stop any smoking and quiet lifters long enough to sell the car to some poor unsuspecting buyer.

Engine starts and stops ticking

Sounds like oil pressure problems to me. Check to make sure your oil level is correct. If the oil level is OK get the engine checked by a professional.

1) the A/C will take some power away from the motor, If it is a big difference have the A/C system checked out.
2) the ticking can be from the lift or the timing chain from age...make sure the oil have been change with oil for the temp. ranger of where you live.

Come to stop 99 Ram oil pressure drops to 0 check gauges light.

Change the oil! The 318Cu in V8 (5.2 liter) engine has a problem with sludge build up on the oil pump pickup tube screen. This engine requires oil changes at or before 3500 miles with a high detergent oil.

Oil light comes on and dings all day

If engine is not ticking or knocking while running, likely the pressure sender is faulty. If changing it makes no difference, have actual pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.

Tick In motor every few seconds after intake gasket changed

Sounds like when they did the intake,They drained the fluids but forgot to fill them back up and since the oil was near empty,I would say it's a lifter.But they can be reprimed or replaced a whole lot easier than some other possible causes.

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

Oil light

it may just be time to change your oil pump.. start your engine and lift your hood.. do you hear a tapping type sound? the impeller inside your pump may be work and thus taking alotl longer then normal to build the proper pressure... if this is true.. get changed ASAP... if it fails it could cause your engine to blow..
