Answer 1
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. -

will double check, appears to be more to drivers side.it's intermittent now. but seems to fade as oil pressure builds. thanks jim -

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 -
