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.

read the archives, this sounds like a common problem we all have had. oil pump chains hardly ever fail. most likely it is your tensioner, fix it soon before it causes damage to your guide rails etc.
