Hello, Many years ago Honda had severe problems with K2 and KZ cams and lifters giving us many headaches. However in modern engines a lot is down to hydraulic lifters/ cam followers and suitable oil, believe it or not the wrong grade can make a whole heap of difference also leaving service intervals too long stretches the life of the lubricant. Remember these are high revving engines so take a lot out of any oil.
Are you using a synthetic lubricant, your environment can alter the viscosity i.e. cold climate thinner oil warm environment medium very warm thinnish.
Although the noise you are experiencing is acceptable at the moment if it gets worse or takes longer to clear a top end internal inspection will be required.
For now if it were me I would be double checking the grade/quality of your oil, then change it and a new Genuine oil filter .
Good luck! I hope this helps?

Engine got a knocking cold start, silint when hot


It has developed a clicking engine noise on a cold start. After the car has warmed up, the sound goes away. ... Clicking or a sharp tapping from the valve cover on top of the engine would point to a valve train noise. A dull tapping or slapping sound from the side of the engine block would point more toward piston slap.4 Nov 2011

I've got a slight ticking noise, but not at start-up. After the engine warms up, it will start out very faint and gradually get louder. After about 2 - 3 minutes, it goes away. This is a High M


This sounds like a tappet (cam follower/rocker arm) is at max clearance. This can be the sign of cam lobe wear or follower wear on its internal clearances or valve tip wear.

Ticking/Tapping when car starts but goes away???


I had what sounds like the exact same problem. It was an exhaust leak from the left (driver's) side exhaust manifold. This engine has a history of the manifold bolts breaking and causing the exhaust leak. The engine is also used on some Dodge vehicles. It sounds like a tick and I almost mistook it for a bad lifter. I took it to the local Jeep dealer who confirmed the exhaust leak. I replaced the left manifold completely and replaced bolts/gaskets on both sides (left/right) and it fixed the problem. Be careful, as the dealer tried to gouge me on the price. You are looking in the ball park of $600 parts/labor. I got parts for $120 and it took the better part of a work day to do the job.

First start car ticking noise after 5 minutes it


This is the tappets on the top of the engine ticking cause they havent got any oil yet. When you first start it take a few secs to get the oil to the top of the engine...It is a warning of impending trouble, but it may or may not be quite a ways off...

THIS IS NORMAL noise for your truck. carbon buildup on pistons causes a cold start knock until warms up. you can run some top engine cleaner thru engine to help. but noise is nothing to affect life of engine
