    Ticking noise from the engine bay

    Hi i recently bought a 2000 silver 2lt sri, so far everything seems to be good. But when i first start the car and its cold i can here a ticking noise, it only last for 30 seconds or so. When it warms up the noise goes away. Any Ideas?

    My guess is it could be a small fuel leek in the valve, so im hoping to try some valve cleaner and see if it solves the problem

    Sounds like tappets to me too.

    If it only does it from cold for 30 secs I wouldn't worry about it

    when the engine is cold its not unusual to get tapping noise, all sort of noises from engine bay, but when the auto choke cuts off, the noises should be gone aswell. If that is the case, I wouldn't worry about it
