My truck has been making some noise when I start up in cold for a few seconds. This is like in the morning before going to work. I live in texas so the whether is extremely hot up to 100 F outside, however I decided to change my oil to 10w-40 with some 20w-50 and a small amount of oil treatment. I am scared if my oil pump is gonna give up one of these days. My dashboard is showing good oil pressure. I need to know if there are any solution to this because I don't wanna wear out my engine too much on start ups.
