I have a 04 Trailblazer LS with a straight v6.
For the past few days the temps outside have been below 20 Degree's When i start my truck cold i think im hearing a ticking sound. it only lasts a minute or 2, then goes away. never had this problem in warm weather. to me it sounds like a lifter knock, the ticking is in sync with the engine rpm's. I think its just thats there no oil at the top end of the engine during start up and that the cold is just slowing the oil down but a want another opinion.
Is there anything else that could be causing this?
What can i do to fix this?
Do I even need to worry about it?
Any feedback is appreciated.

I don't know too much about that but I really think your right, oils cold and lifters are sticking until it's warm? maybe get an engine block heater and it will start easier?00 Chevy k3500
