    Default Slight ticking on start until warm on 1.8club?

    As you can see from the thread name the car has a tick that sounds rubbish until its warm then its fine.

    Does it need a flush?

    Might be warn "hydraulic tappets" ( they tend to drain the oil out when worn, then rattle a little till they have filled up again).I don,t think an oil flush would do any good. In fact I myself would not recomend an oil flush at all.

    depends what milage you have done since the change,if the oil is tired new oil may cure the noise with good viscosity.there's no substitute for a good quality lube oil and filter
