    I don,t think they have a chain. So that is one thing we can rule out. Do you get a sort of "tappet" noise when you start up from cold. What sort of milage has it done, and when was it last serviced. I from what you have said don,t think it is the head gasket. Things to check for a posible head gasket failure are. Water in the oil ( take the dipstick out to see if there are dropplets of oil on it) Oil in the header tank. Have a general look around the engine bay to see if anything has come loose.
