Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country
Makes noise for a couple minutes after started and then goes away
If the noise sounds like a diesel engine, knocking until the engine warms up, more than likely it's one of the rods/rod bearing. Unfortunately, if that is the case the engine is running on borrowed time. You'll be lucky if you get 2000 miles before total engine failure; I wouldn't recommend taking it on any long trips.
It would need to be serviced by a professional, they need to check the rods, rocker arms, lifters, and the timing chain for the cause.
