2007 VUE 2.2L
Default ticking sound at start up

I get a ticking sound on startup 2007 vue 2.2 l 4 cyl but it only lasts a moment then goes away? sounds like a spark sound or a lifter sound not really sure but like I said it goes away fast or should I say the sound gets lower after a minute or so.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Does the ticking ever go away completely? Usually lifters just get quieter, But sometimes they do seem to disappear as the engine warms up.. A spark plug wire will tick the entire time.

it goes away within a minute or 2 on cold start then I don't hear it anymore.

Mine (2004) did the same thing - took longer to go away in the cold weather than in the summer. Turned out to be the exhaust manifold - one of the bolts broke. Once the manifold was replaced and bolt repaired, noise gone.

I drove it for about 7 years that way. I wouldn't have ever fixed it but it finally caused a check engine light cause the O2 sensor would get confused because of the leak.

Do you have the correct OEM oil filter and correct viscosity oil installed on the engine? Is the engine oil level correct?

A poor-quality aftermarket oil filter (or one that is partially clogged) can cause oil starvation at engine start-up, and the ticking noise. Incorrect oil viscosity can also cause engine ticking at start-up. A low engine oil level can also cause ticking at start-up.

Are you sure its not the timing chain? it can sound a little diesely or like a tick when the tensioner is first going bad. its on the passenger side of the engine.
