I didnt ever think I would post a question about a "clicky" sound seeing how it might be anything... but here it goes.:rofl:

Normally, in the morning, after my car has been sitting for 7-8 hours when I start it up there is a brief regular tempo clicking sound. It lasts for maybe 1-2 seconds and then it stops. It won't typically do this again for the rest of the day but sure enough it will happen the following morning.

Is this perhaps an oil pump?

Thank you.

it's your valve train waiting for the first bit of oil to make it up there. the car sits, the oil drains back to the pan the pump has to replace the oil up top but it takes a couple seconds to get there so you hear some clicking. how many miles you got?
