i had the same problem...my problem was that the alternator wasn't lined up right with the rest of my pulleys..ihad to put a spacer behind it to line it up.... it could just be the belt or a pulley...mine was a.bitch to find the problem....if im not mistaken i could hear a pretty noticeable piston slap...i hope yours goes away once it warms up...

my mechanic said it is the valve and there is nothing he can do to get rid of the noise..maybe buy a thicker oil it might quit it but thats it... this is after the car has warmed up some
