    Engine rattling noise at start-up

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forum so do forgive me if this has been answered before.

    I've just bought a 2003 4.2 XK8 coupé, about 73,000 miles. I've noticed that it has a concerning rattling sound when I start the engine after it's been off for several hours or overnight. It only lasts a second, and if I turn the engine off and on again, the noise isn't there.

    I've included a YouTube audio clip:



    What is this likely to be, and what sort of repair costs am I looking at? It there a fix that will cure this for the foreseeable future?

    Thanks,

    Julsey

    That sounds like tappet rattle until oil is pumped.
