My engine rattles the first ten seconds after being started. Does this have to do with the timing chain tensioner or the oil pump chain? Thanks.

I just had the same problem with my 88. This could be a sign of a exhaust leak. My case was that some of the bolts from my header have broken off, and made the header bang against the engine block.
