Start up sound, rattling for a second.

So it started a few weeks ago. I'd start my car after being parked for a few hours or so during school and when I start it makes this ratting sound. I've read on other sites what it might be but I'd rather have your guys opinion.

Describe the rattling in more detail and where is it coming from IRT the car (area)? Is it when motor is running, while driving, idling, when turning over? Any added description can aid in possible origin/source...

Timing chain tensioner. Get the new revised version the one with the bump on the bolt head. Solved my issue.
