    Could be cam chain? Try lifting the cam chain off the sprocket - the slipper auto tensioner is known to break.

    If the above is suspect - investigate ASAP. If the chain jumps the sprocket your motor is toast.

    Agreed cam chain sounds more plausible or maybe hydraulic cam follower. My car makes a rattle on first start up sometimes & I think it's a dodgy cam follower that takes a few seconds to pump up with oil. http://www.fq101.co.uk/how-to-guides...ne/412-tappets
