Default honda Civic LX - 163K miles, problems


My Honda Civic 1997 - 163 miles has the following problems, could somebody help?

(1) When I start the cold engine in the morning, there is a continuous clock like ticking sound from the engine (in both Drive and Reverse) and it goes away after 5 mins of continuous ticking. It's like a very fast tick tick tick tick sound like when you wind up a toy and let it go.

(2) When the traffic light turns green, I press the gas pedal gradually (I have a very light foot) but the car does not gradually increase speed, when I keep pressing then suddenly the car jumps and surges forward !! Does the car not get the requisite gas when I step on the pedal gradually? Why? Otherwise the car drives very smooth.

I have done all regular maintenance on this car including oil changes every 3K miles and the car is clean and sparkling.
