engine noise

Last night I was taking the 90 out to go Dove Hunting and fired up the engine and there was a ticking/clicking noise that was coming from the engine. It would get faster if the engine was given a little gas. Popped the hood and it sounded like it was coming from the top on the right side of the engine. Like under the valve cover. By the time I popped the hood it had gotten quiter and thirty seconds after that it was gone. Drove it and it did not make the noise again. Got any ideas what I need to look for and what to do? Thanks, Michael

Sounds like the oil had drained out of the lifters. Had it been sitting long? A common cause would be a cheap fram oil filter with no check valve.

Thats my guess for what its worth.

No I had just driven it home from work 1/2 an hour before. I drive it every day. Infact have driven it to work today and no noise. Just changed the oil 900 miles ago and used geniune Land Rover filter.
