    Whenever my engine is cold (after its been sittin and i start it up) my engine clicks. It sounds like a roller coaster goin up a hill, click click click, and it does it as i as i accel and deccel. But after the engine warms up it goes away. anyone know what it could be?

    If it's not the valves (1st guess) look for an exhaust leak at the manifold/header, ox sensor, etc......
