Re: 03 Civic engine clatter on cold days

If you had said "a ticking noise" instead of "clatter", I think that is almost considered normal on Hondas (on cold startup and only for about the same length of time you indicated).

Regarding the VTEC engine design, in years past, it was only available on the higher trim levels. Over time, I think they've moved to that engine for all levels.
