Determine the location of noise, either in engine left, right, lower or drive belt area. At least to narrow a possible location. We have seen drive belt tension assembly rattles when starting up. so i would check that too.

My eoftenxperience with dealers is you best have a good idea of problem ahead of time.Mechanics often know of the problems but getting manager to ok fix can be a problem. thanks jim ps. it took 5-years to get my 87 Dakota fixed
