Fast Clicking Sound when first starting and Driving?

hey guys, thanks for the help in previous problems. one more thing i noticed is when i first start my car and drive (Gear 1) for about 5-10 seconds of moving i hear this Fast Clicking Sound, anyone know what this could be from? after that it goes away.

i don't think its the lifters, it sounds more from under the car, kinda like how your CV Joint Clicks when its worn.

Does it tick at idle, then get faster when you rev it up? Sounds like lifter tick to me too.

it doesnt tick at idle, only when i first start moving for like 5-10 seconds and then it doesnt do it anymore. it sounds like the ticking from the CV Joint and Axles when they are worn but it isnt that.

Maybe it's something to do with the ALB motor? Mine's more of a motor whirring sound for about 7 seconds and then it stops. Maybe there's a relay trying to start the motor or something. Just a guess.

If its clicking down by your axles, its definitely going to be your axles. Have you checked for any torn boots (thinking inner boot as opposed to outer).

i have visually inspected em yesterday as i had my car up on jack stands. after all my repairs and stuff i left the splash guard off cause i knew i was still going to be doin some work. so before i put it back on i wiped down the tranny and any grease/oil under the car and inspected everything i could see.

The relays are in the under hood fuse box. A quick way to check if its coming from anything to do with the ALB system is to pull the fuses for ALB in that fuse box. If your clicking goes away, you found your problem, otherwise, put the fuses back in.
