SOURCE: noise when start engine
I have the same problem with my CX-7, but I haven't find solution yet :( :( :(
They open the engine and replace the timing belt tensioner, but that was not the problem

Not likely. You have a 4 cyl engine with over head cam. It has hydrolic lifters. If it wasn't making the noise before he replaced the chain, then its something he did...or didn't do. If it was making the noise before, most common reason would be 1 or more lifters not pumping up. If you have a six cyl, no one changed the timing chain, (It doesn't have one!) The 3.0 6cyl has a belt.

Also known as a Liana in some markets, this may have either a "G" series or a "J" series motor in it. This can be checked by finding the engine number - either G16B123456 or J18A123456. The G series is belt driven, while the J series is chain driven (2 chains).

Either the camshaft are seriously out of time or the piston rings/pistons are worn out.
Check TDC of Piston No1 on the power stroke coincides with both inlet and exhaust valves being closed.
