Engine Tick

I have noticed a ticking sound coming from my engine after changing my oil yesterday at 9800mi. I was wondering if anyone knows what this could be? Thanks

There have been several threads started about the ticking sound coming from the engine after an oil change. I believe Matt a Spartan had a good explanation for it. I just hope is was posted after the December issue with the site. Do a search and I hope you can find it.

Not sure then, maybe the lifters are dry after draining the oil and the idleing oil pressure isnt enough to fully pressurise them. Try driving it a few miles and see if the noise dosnt go away.

Could it be that the 15w40 is too heavy for cold temps (30's)?
