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.

Call Chry. Corprate office! At least make them aware that you have a problem.
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.

but seems to fade as oil pressure builds.
thanks jim
