I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

it is possible that the timing chain is rattling, it is common. also could be a belt driven component


I would recommend having the noise traced with a mechanic's stethoscope as this will be the only way to verify the exact cause
