Try using a lighter weight oil as the temperature gets colder outside the oil becomes thicker and takes more time for the more defeat the oil so that it may and pump up into the valves and etc most vehicles will tick until the oil warms and will go away ....also a higher grade of gas will also help

2000 tdi when cold tick over very lumpy and smokes when warm its ok it starts first time no problem?


Not sure what "tick over" means. Suspect it is hard to start when cold? Could be bad glow plugs. They "warm" the cylinders to get them up to temp before starting. It could also be that you are not waiting for the cylinders to warm up. I have a 2009 tdi. It has a light on the dash that goes on when I put the key in, but I have to wait for it to go out before starting the engine.

On a cold start my car has a ticking noise. I've got a Chrysler neon 2000 Le


If it goes away after the engine warms up it is likely loose pistons or worn piston skits. As long as it goes away after the engine is warm it won't hurt anything. It is common on engines with some age on them. When the engine get hot the pistons expand and the noise usually goes away.

My 2000 malibu has 116,000 mile on it . at about 114,000 miles there is a ticking when first starting up . after a few minutes for warm up it goes away. is it something that i should have checked out?


on the 3.1 it is normal unless the ticking does not go away when warm. just keep oil clean and all should be ok. my 2000 malibu does the same thing. all 3.1 engines do this when cold.

What could be the clicking sound coming from the engine - continues clicking as I drive. it's a 2005 pontiac sunfire


If it just does it when cold it's piston slap. GM made the skirts shorter to save weight and metal so until they warm up and expand in the walls your piston sill "rattle around" in the sleeve of the block making a "ticking" sound. This is normal but annoying.
If it continues when warm it could be a number of things too numerous to mention.
Try adding Lucas to your engine oil on the next service and see if it goes away.
Switching to a higher grade fuel may also solve your issue. Both cheap fixes.

I HAVE A LIKE LIGHT KNOCK OR TICKING IN ENGINE ITS WORST WHEN ITS COLD


ticking sounds that are worse when cold usually indicate a lifter issue or valve train

Lifters require pulling the intake and the heads

Experiencing a "ticking" "knocking" type noise when 1st starting the car in colder weather that goes away once the blazer warms up , any help ?? I was told it could be the exhaust manifold , or piston...


it may need a lifter or valve adjustment when cold they will tick or knock depending on how loose or worn out then when it warms up they swell with heast and noise stops. after adjusting or replacing it will stop making noise

My 97 plymouth voyager makes a ticking noise when it is cold but when it is warm the ticking noise goes away what would cuase this?


Usually a ticking from the engine is caused by oil not coating the tappets. Tappets are the rods that control the intake and exhaust valves. Once the engine warms up oil is circulated to those parts and the ticking stops.
Mopar is famous for that
