Clicking Sounds

ok so my car is making a clicking sound every time i press the gas. its not at a continuous click, it lasts less then a second, this only happens for about 30 seconds. Sometimes when I start the car it makes the same sound but loud. I had the car for less then a year. Anyone knows what the problem is?

it's one of those things that happens when you dont expect it but when you try to show someone it doesnt happen.

yeah it happens on a cold start when the oil is cold. there's a hydraulic actuator that acts differently depending on your oil pressure. it's not a big deal, could cost you money way later though. just change your oil on time.

i was smoking a butt last night and also realized it could be your exhaust header gasket. they tend to loosen up since they're very lightly tightened to begin with.
