1991 Mazda b2600i, has a ticking sound, (lifter?), when first cranked. After warming up, noise quits
pretty sure it's an overhead cam so there wouldnt be lifters. depending on the type of tick it could be sticky valves (if it's a higher pitch tick) or if it has a bit more of knock it could be that the oil hasnt reached parts of the engine to quite the problem. there are knocks that ppl will hide by putting in a thicker oil to cover the real problem
Thnks for the help...
My oil intake screen in my oil pan got very clogged after years of low $ oil changes, so u need to have newer oil
