Q: Clacking at start up on 2004 Nissan Quest

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
when the van is started, it sounds very loud in the engine like a clacking sound. It goes away after about 5 minutes. the dealer tells me its a tensioner issue and should be resolved with regular oil changes using high grade oil. any help?
