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.
1 in 20 times when I start my 91 it will do that, but it sounds like knocking, and when oil pressure is achieved it stops. Car has 100K on it. were the oil pumps particularly faulty?
