squeeking/ ticking

Car : 1998 bmw 318is

So whenever I start my car in the morning and its cold, I get a steady ticking sound comming from the engine bay. Sounds almost like a squeeking or a cricket, and its loud. When I gas it the ticking gets faster and faster. Any ideas what it could potentially be? Anyone else have a similiar issue?

check your oil, what are you running for winter?

Could also be your vanos ... er, wait, 318's didn't have vanos. (right?)

ticking, rubbing, scraping? describe more
and what frequency? like is it just "tick....tick" or is it contant ticking? and lastly, does it increase as speed of your car goes up or with the engine speed?
