    Problems and Service
    So I started up a thread a long time ago on this issue, and I got back into researching it. So my 2008 Ls with 73k still rattles on startup, for about 2 seconds. The longer it sits, the longer it lasts. It seems I've found it could be two things. Either the timing chain tensioner, or oil...
