Hello fellow car talk members. I have a @001 Kia Sportage i think close to or just over 80k in miles. every morning when i first start the car up it knocks/taps like crazy but once it starts to warm up it runs fine. im thinking it might be the lifters or something? cloud they be loose or sticking? please help
