Default 07 forenza. lifter noise?

Car makes a pretty loud ticking/clicking noise for the first 5 mins it runs..or until it starts heating up. Sounds like up top/valve cover. Any input. New lifters needed?

here are a few links from what my car was doing and a few other members are experiencing. (sorry the video does not work anymore) if yours is a 2007 i would think that you should might still have the warranty. i would check with your local suzuki dealer to see if they can do it for you.

Default lifter noise

Replacing the lifters will resolve your noise, however the lifters failed because of lack of lubrication. With that stated I would recommend that you seek the reason why you dont have enough oil pressure to the head area. Possibly a restricted oil pick up tube.

had an oil leak on the oil pan and figured to fix it and check out the pick up tube. While i had the oil pan off i didn't see any sludge or anything that would point to a clog. the pick up tube was clean (from what i could tell). I tried to remove the tube but the allen screws holding it on were on to tight i didn't want to risk breaking them. Not sure what else to look for at this point besides to let it die a slooooow death.
