    Default cold engine start clicking noise, what is it?

    I replaced my fuel filter on my 2003 2.4L tacoma 2wd. 65k miles. At the same time I checked the valves. No valve adjustment needed. Now I hear 4 to 6 rapid metallic
    clicks when i start the engine cold. Once it happened when it was warm. This fuel
    filter is not original equipment.

    ideas?

    tks,
    pa

    Check your box to make sure your wrench is not in valve cover.
    Kidding.
    it did not make any noise until valve cover was off then back on ?
    Or fuel filter changed (or both) ?
    I wouldn't think an engine noise would be relevant to a fuel filter, as the filter is on the other side of the engine.
    Maybe do an oil change and see what happens.
    Check for bulletins ?
