Default Engine noise

I start my car the other day it was 10 outside and the car had sat for about 3 days. And for the 1st 15-30 seconds after start up I could really hear those values. Oil pressue was reading about 85-95. Should I be worreid about this I have started this car in colder weather have never hard anything from the motor ,but was the 1st in which it sat for more then 24hrs in cold weather. I haven't heard anything since from the motor for the record I use 10-30w Vavlione non synthnic. I was thinking maybe the it was just oil was a little thick. Have about 700 miles on oil and still looks like just from the bottle

Master... you don't actually have a problem except maybe where you live.

The cold will do that to any car.

I helped this on an old truck I had with Slick 50 oil additive. It'* a once per 50,000 miles additive. In other words..you add when you change your oil one day. Then you keep your normal oil change schedule with regular oil after that.

I am not suggesting or telling you to use it. It is according to the label "safe" and I actually have it in both my SSEi'* about 3 oil changes ago. I need to add it to my truck for the same issues you are having.
