Rattly 147

Hi, I'm a new member to the forum and hope you can help me. I have a 2003 147 2.0TS which runs fine when warm but rattles and sounds really rough for about a minute when starting from cold. When warm the engine is pretty quiet. Any ideas?
I am also looking for a decent specialist to use for a cam belt change and service.

Re: Rattly 147

My 145 sounds slightly tappety (this is not the variator as this is new) upon startup. I do remember reading a thread on here recently about TS engines sounding slightly rough on startup (not due to the variator). I'd also be interested in any feedback.
