wierd start up noise

for the past couple of days, when i go to start my jeep (hot or cold start), right after it turns over, i hear what sounds to me like load clicking noises. it only last for about two seconds and then goes right away. could this be a top end engine part being starved of oil or something?

Without knowing where the noise is coming from, it's hard to say. However, if I had to take a blind stab at it, I'd say that your oil is draining down quickly and causing a little bit of lifter noise. Are you using a synthetic, by chance?

It's probably your valvetrain leaking down oil and not having the lifters pumped up. What kind of oil filter do you use?

I use a Fram, I have been using fram for years with no issues.

I know alot of people here don't like them though, i've just never seen any proof of the arguement agaqinst them.

Myaby i'll try a different filter next oil change.

Well, here's your proof of argument. The anti drainback valve sucks, and that's why your engine is making the noise.

if it is infact because of the filter, what kind of damage can this cause if not changed right away
