Thought about exhaust manifold / gasket problems?

Cracked manifold will tick till warm when things expand then stop.

Just a thought.

> there's a really worrisome ticking/clicking noise that i hear from my car
that suddenly disappears when the car warms up....i suspect it has something
to do with the lifter/springs on the valves....the noise is louder when oil
pressure is low during the heating up phase and then disappears once the oil
pressure is up and the cars heated up...anyone any i need an
overhaul?? to replace the lifters??
