    Default 2.2 direct.engine engine rattle after approx 5 mins.any ideas?

    (Z22YH) After approx 5 mins of starting engine you can hear a rattle noise coming from the front of the engine.This noise disappears approx 5 minutes later.Could this be the chain tensioner ? The engine oil level is correct.
    The chain & tensioner where replaced 3 years ago.Please Help.

    I know it sounds odd.Think it's mainly when using the car first thing in the day.Engine starts from cold and sounds fine but as i say after 5 mins,engine starts to sound like a diesel and then a short time later noise goes away and sounds fine again.
    Do you think it could be the hydraulic chain tensioner.

    Deffo get the chain/tensioner checked out, but you never know it could be as simple as a cracked manifold or loose manifold bolt. As the heat comes in things expand, the cast 2.2 manifold has been known to do this, but I think first thing to check will always be the tensioner and chain.
