Hi Scotty. I have a 2014 seat Leon diesel. When I start the engine from cold I hear a ticking sound. Once the engine has warned up it goes away. Could this be a valve? Is it something I should be worried about.. Thanks 38000 miles

wow, that low mileage it should make no noise. I would flush the engine oil and change it and pray noise goes away. if not, it has internal damage and I would have the valve covers removed and valve train checked for wear first.

Thanks for your reply Scotty. I have just last month changed the oil. I bought the car at 22k miles and the ticking started about 4k miles ago. I actually hit a huge pothole on the highway so I wonder if it's damaged something internally
