    my mom drives a 2000 land cruiser with like 100000 miles on it or in that area, great great vehicle and still runs like new, but when you start the vehicle and you start to drive it you hear a ticking/clicking noise like when a kid puts a card against his bicycle spokes. The noise only occurs when the car is moving and only for like the first 5 min of it running then it dissapears. Anyone have any idea what it could be from??

    My first guess would be cold/insufficient oil causing a lifter to make noise. Second guess is a worn lifter.

    That's the easy guesses.

    Beyond that, there are any number of emissions-related bits that do their thing during a cold start and could be a source.

    Pull the dipstick. The problem might be obvious.
