Ticking

So when I initially start my car up I hear a ticking sound from what seems like the top of my engine(tick tick tick tick). After a little while it goes away. Any idea what could be causing this sound? Someone told me I need to use thicker oil.

It's actually very common with our cars, i read on a thread once that it was caused bc when the engine is cold the metal is more compressed, but once it expands it goes away, but it causes no harm to the engine whatsoever

A common problem is the exhaust headers. The ac drip line drips on the headers and needs to be relocated. My friends 04 did the same thing.
Take a hose and stick it in your ear and try to locate the problem. Use it like a doctor uses a stethoscope. Of course, the sound will get loud when you locate the problem.

You can get rid of it sure, you have to get a new manifold, to relocate the ac drip just get a rubber hose that fits on the ac tube where it drips and cut the hose off wherever you want it to drip (hopefully somewhere where nothing gets damaged)
