Yes, if it gets worse you will have to change it or it will wear out the camshaft.

Lifter noise


If it is a high milage car this is not uncommon. try an oil additive like lucas oil stabilazier and see if that quiets it down.

Engine ticking on cold startup


There are additives for the oil that frees sticking lifters. Try putting some in the oil first. If that doesn't work then you'll have to replace all the lifters . Never just replace just one.

Iratic tick over when warm


Could be many things. Sometimes Exhaust flange joints will get a gap in them and tick. You could be hearing the Injectors, or hydraulic lifters.

The exhaust tick and lifter tick both are temperature sensitive as opposed to the injectors.

What you could do is run the engine and drain the oil and put in fresh cold oil. The first few seconds the cold oil will be thicker and if it is a lifter problem, the oil will cushion the noise temporarily until it warms. The exhaust will already be hot, so you will notice a noise on startup. If the noise generates later, its an oil related problem.

The exhaust flange problem can sometimes be heard when backing up and reversing direction. The Torque puts a strain on the pipe joint as the Torque changes from Reverse to Forward.

I hope my Solution is helpful.

when oil is cold it is thicker and stays [on]coats metal as oil warms up it thins out and flows better[makes it thinner will hear ticking] sounds like a bad lifter or even camshaft lobe problem ,could also have a problem with a loose or out of adjustment rocker arm

I have a 2004 volvo s40 1.9t and it has a ticking sound when cold but stops after gets warm, what could be the cause?


Have you recently changed the oil? have you go the correct grade of oil?

Sounds like the hydraulic lifters are being starved of oil during initial startup! when the oil reaches correct viscosy then the lifters settle down!

Ticking Noise at Startup


Possibly a leaking hydraulic lifter. They can leak down while engine isn't running and then make a ticking noise for a while on startup. If it takes 10-15 minutes to go away, it is more likely to be a loose tappet which needs adjusting.

Engine ticking at idle and low speeds


Hi There,
I would try adding a lifter quiet supstance such as nulon lifter quiet, may or may not be available in your country, 
Or try heading to a local auto store and look for a reputable brand name products, ie injector clean/ carby clean /lifter quiet/worn engine treatment.
Below i have listed common problems related to yours that might be worth checking.
Sometimes the oil that you may of put in may not be thick enough hence why youre getting more noise.
it could mean yes that a lifter or shim is loose and needs adjustment,
injector noise from fuel injectors if they get clogged up they tick loudly.
Dirty fuel causing injector noise
Low oil or incorrect oil level as in over full.
Incorrect oil specification/ wrong Viscosity or grade.
Leak or low oil presssure could be a blockage somewhere stopping oil circulating
Worn oil pump not correctly pumping enough oil.
Oil line blockage insufficent oil getting up to the lifters
It coudl even be driveline related as in a C.V. joint coudl be loose/worn and ticking.
Ive even seen cars where wire has been entwined aroudn the driveshaft and taps against the floor/wall
Coudl be a fan if your fan runs off the engine rather then electric ticking against the houseing or it could also be a belt or bearing in one of you accesories ie a bearing in the aircondition clutch tha tmay be loose and is ticking.
However start small and go from the cheapest option up to the dearest.
Make sure you have a good listen while its running with the bonnet up and go through to try and find the source of the sound.
Usually this is what the mechanics would- do anyway untill they find the problem.
Hoipefully this helps so you dont have to take it to the shop.
Cheers
Steve

yes it is a lifter or a rocker arm, add a can of a chemical called Berryman's chemtool, drive it for a day or so and drain the oil, if that doesn't cure the noise u are going to have to replace the lifter, rocker as nessararyt,
