It probably has hydraulic lifters, they can wear and bleed down sometimes and will tick until the air pumps out of them, this can also happen if the engine is over reved or raced.
An oil change can sometimes help, if it gets worse a new set of lifters may be necessary.

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

My 2002 grand prix goes from cold to hot when first started, then goes to normal. Now it ticks loudly at first then goes away. Could it be the thermostat?


Could be.
If the engine goes to hot say 5 minutes after starting then back to normal, the thermostat could be slow to open, or you could have air pockets in the cooling system.
The ticking is lack of oil or oil pressure, or a worn out bearing or lifter inside the engine.

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.

2003 dodge ram has light tick for a minute at cold start then goes away


The 'light tick' is most probably a valve lifter. The valve lifters in the engine are hydraulic, and are pressurized by the engine's oil pump.
When the engine gets some mileage, say 60 or 70 thousand miles or more, the engine is just not as tight as it once was. What happens is that the lifter loses its pressure when the engine is not running, because there is some wear. When you start the engine, the lifter takes a few moments to pressurize, and makers a ticking noise until it does. The 'ticking' is the sound of the valve being hit by the push rod, which is being pushed by the lifter. Once the lifter is pressurized, the 'ticking' sound stops. This is a very common thing for engines, it will eventually happen to nearly every one.
Sometimes, thin, old oil can cause this. If you have not changed the oil/filter in a while, you should do it now.

This is nothing to really worry about right now, but it is a sign of engine wear. Just be sure to run the proper oil in the engine, and do all the proper maintenance.

Makes like a ticking or light knocking noise at start up, whether it's hot or cold outside. I usually let the truck idle for a while and it goes away.


Usually a sign of needing an oil change. My Dodge Dakota does the same thing, when I change the oil it goes away. Every couple of oil changes I use kerosene to clean out the gunk, just put kerosene in place of the oil, let the motor run for a minute then drain, replace the oil filter, and fill with oil, then you're good to go.

Ticking noise


you need to give us more info about your car, based on your info i would say one of your valve lifters is bleeding off pressure when the engine is off, you can try putting 1/2 qt. of automatic transmission fluid in your engine oil, atf is a good cleaning agent and may clean your lifters up. i have done it many times

Load ticking at start up and continues for a while on my 04 F150


If the ticking sound sounds like it is coming from the top of the engine them most likely one of the lifters is bleeding off while it is sitting. If the ticking goes away after a few minutes of operation then the lifter has pumped its self back up and is operating properly. There is not any damage you can do to the engine by not replacing the lifter at this point, just the annoying ticking sound when first starting. If at some point the ticking continues after running for a few minutes the lifter has malfunctioned and should be replaced. Just remember, if you replace one lifter you should replace all of them.

When i start my truck up theres a tticking sound coming from the right side of my motor when i start it up goes away when i drive but when idling or starting it up you can here it tick loud its not a...


The sound you are hearing is an exhaust leak. Sounds like a ticking noise, goes away when driving, but can be heard when sitting. You probably have a bad manifold gasket, or loose clamp or broken weld on exhaust. Best way to tell is start it up and listen as to find leak. Or take to a muffler shop and have them repair it.
