Try removing the aux belt and listening. Many of the pulleys can give these symptoms but it's not usually temperature dependent. Likewise the engine mount should give pretty consistent noise regardless of temperature.
Injector seals are noisy when leaking and can tighten up when hot. Feel for a draft but however they sound more slappy than rattley.
