Default Is my motor in my '00 civic dieing soon?

I have 70k (hard) miles on the car and when I do a cold start in the morning i can hear my engine clacking or ticking a little until it warms up. Is this a sign of something serious? or can I just resume a normal maintenance schedule? please help I'm poor and cant afford repairs.

i doubt that its dieing,its hard to kill a Honda engine,it probably just needs the valves adjusted on it and some good regular maintenance on it,those are good engines,and last a very long time,they been known to go for three hundred thousand without giving too many problems,have a shop look at it for you they will give you an estimate of what it will cost to get if sounding good again,good luck with it.

I think the valves need adjusting. Also, if you have not changed the timing belt, you might better get that done before things really get bad. Unfortunately, it might be kinda pricey to have that $25 belt replaced and the valves adjusted.

your engine is not that old for a honda. if your using conventional oil change to mobil 1. it happens when you first do your cold start because your oil is not protecting your engine properly. then chk your fuel if your fuel's octane rating is below 93 the valves would make that clanking sound. if it doesnt go away then go for valve clearance adjustment. Dont worry your concern is not that serious.

ummmm, i've herd that noise before, well for one since your car is not brand new, i think it will make that noise because of how many miles you have on it, and you would might have to have your ouil changed years soon.... or take it to a shop to get your tune up done to the engine.........
