When starated it startes to rattle /but quites the longer yu run it
You would need a repair manual for the procedure to remove the oil pan.
Problem could be the pump, or sludge in the oil passages, or worn bearings.

It used to be every 3 months or 3,000 miles but some manufacturers are suggesting that 5,000 miles is ok. My view is that it does not hurt the motor having more oil changes. I continue to have them done every 3,000 miles myself even if my oil life indicator has not come on. Clean oil is very important to have a engine last for many miles. There are some full synthetic oils that can go for 5,000 or 7,000 miles beteween oil changes but cost alot more than the standard oil.

Get the oil pressure tested....
If you hear rattling, it's probably low oil pressure, but it could be the pump, or if your bearings in the engine are worn badly, that will cause it also. (From antifreeze mixing with oil)

Testimonial: "Thank's a heap I need a motor now 4.7are high"
timing belts should be checked every 20,000 miles and replaced every 50,000 but sounds like you need a new thermostat and your valves are going bad

This car has a catalytic converter, you can't see the smoke of the burned oil with it, it's cleaned. The oil could get in the plugs cavity only if there's a leak at the valve cover. My guess is that the oil seeps out only when there's pressure - the engine is running. To find where it leaks clean your engine thoroughly the start the engine in your driveway for an hour - where the oil will leak you clearly see it. In that case replace the corresponding seal.
