Question about Pontiac Cars & Trucks
Haven't tried anything yet. The oil on the dipstick is clean, but it's more than half way up the stick. And on start up, it's loud and ticking. But when the engine warms up, the ticking is very minimal.
Try draining the oil to the required limit , there will be a min and max mar on the dipstick,the noise on start up is the excess oil trying to be pumped around when it is cold , also excessive oil can leak out of the main crank seal into the clutch housing and cause damage there

you can pull the valve covers and inspect the rocker arms, but you may have a bad main or rod bearing. im leaning toward the main bearing being spun, at least.

Check out the exhaust manifold.
When it heats up the metal expands and closes the gap on the leak a little. When it cools down the metal contracts and the leak is loud when you first start up.
What your describing sounds like a exhaust manifold leak.

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!

more than likely you will need new lifters but i have gotten away with substituting 1 quart of atf for one quart of oil on an oil change that seems to work good and make sure you don't use any thick oil treatments and are running 5w30w oil..
