"ticking noise"

My 04 Rubi has a ticking noise on cold starts. It goes away after a couple of minutes, or after engine gets warm. Any problems?

Probably a lifter sticking. Its common. Most people just leave it alone, some repair it by replacing the lifters and yet others try oil "treatments" and report some success.

I suggest trying to listen and determine the general area where the source is and also looking at the OPDA thread.
