Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Montero
During cold weather my engine makes this loud rattle noise for the first couple of minutes, and drops the idle as if to cut off, then it goes away. I keep up with the oil chages at 66k it sould'nt be making that kind of noise.
Possible cat converter rattle. tap on converter wit rubber hammer with engine off. see if you can hear rattle as you tao on converter.

More than likely the timing belt tensioner.

Sounds like your oil pump inside the engine is not pumping oil fast enough when you start your vehicle its common problem for mitsubishi motors my car does the same thing.
