I would suggest hat you replace the timing belt. The noise that you hear is the belt.

    If your timing belt is stretched, it will flap and rattle when cold, and the noise will subside when the engine warms up. Also, if the belt is noisy, it is indeed stretched. A stretched belt will cause the engine to run slightly "out of time", and you performance will be compromised. Replace the belt, that should fix you right up.

I have a 1990 toyota celica when its cold the idle goes from bout 1000 to 2000 back and forth check engine light is on what cold its be or where should i start


Faulty engine temperature sensor ?? On a cold start the temperature sensor should detect a cold engine and give a signal to the ecu to increase fuel ratio until the engine has warmed up. sounds like faulty sensor to me.

03 Kia Rio will not engage into drive when cold (Automatic)


This is a situation of low pressure,as you warm up the vehicle the transmission fluid is warmer which allow the torque convertor to produce pressure to collapse the clutch pack and transfer power for a shift gear,your solution is a torque convertor and a front pump

Growling engine noise only at idle. Cam area


Take all of the belts off for a short run at idle. If the sound goes away it is pulley related, spin each pulley and listen for bearing noise, also check for play at this time.

If the noise does not go away when the motor is driving no accessories you have a more serious problem.

2000 Nissan Maxima sounds like its not shifting into 3rd gear


What do you mean by loud... Loud where??? If noise is from engine, make sure that the mechanical fan clutch is not "locked" (it's supposed to freewheel when cold... if it does not, it will "roar" when driving.

Oil pressure light on at idle


Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.
