No and I were you I would take it to the dealer to get it checked out. But of course it will be to duplicate the problem since it's only happening during cold starts.

if its something that only happens when its a cold start then your best bet will be to leave it there overnight. but ill try and check mines, see if i have the same thing or not.

i took it to the dealership and they found out that the "power steering pump" is faulty that's why its making the noise.

I have the exact same problem on my 08 Accord I4. Pinoy, did you finally get it fixed? What was the exact cause of the noise? Thanks

The rattling is more like gear slip noise rather than rattling. And it only happens on startup after the car has been sitting for a couple of hours (so usually in the morning when I go to work and after work), doesn't matter if it's cold or hot outside.

I dont know if the inline4 k24 has a auto chain tensioner like my brother altima does. Maybe one test you can do is, turn the ign to on but wait 5 seconds before starting the car. See if the noise is appearen or not.

Thanks jayknight! I'll try that out tonight and tomorrow morning. I think Pinoy mentioned something about getting his timing chain tensioner looked at, but it didn't help. Does the auto chain tensioner activate when the car goes into ON mode before engine start?
