2000 Toyota Corolla Q&A

2000 Toyota Corolla Question: Low ticking noise when starting up. Could it need oil change?

The noise does die down when it's been on the road a while. Thank you. -
Answer 1
Try checking the oil level first before driving! Running an engine low on oil can be disasterous. Improper oil grade, worn engine components, and/or cold startup temperatures can all produce ticking noises that fade as engine temps get to proper operating levels. -

Thank you! I have just bought this car a few months ago and I will go get the oil change just in case. -
