Hello and welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I start by asking a few questions so I can better understand the problem?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Expert:  scionking replied 11 months ago.

Are there any warning lights on?

Does it only do this metal rattling on the first start of the day, or does it do it every time you start the car, as in multiple times a day if you were to start it multiple times?

Have you checked the oil level?
