Funky Noise During Warm Up
When my motor is cold it makes a ticking noise from 1,500-2,000 rpm. Once the car warms up, the noise goes away completely. It's not a rattle, not the normal loud valve tick, nor fuel injector tick, it is a distinct ticking coming from inside the motor. It is a 100% stock 95 LS B18B1 auto with 178,000 miles. It's been doing this for the last couple weeks. I did an oil change about 3-4 weeks ago and the ticking still remained. Oil looks fine and was a normal colour. I use the cheapo Mobil Super 10w-30. I'm not looking for a "what is this problem?" but for more of a "what are the possible issues I may be facing?"
There is no power loss, smoke nor any leaks.
Any recommendations to help stop, or even alleviate, the ticking would be advisable as well.
