E46 320d

i have a rattle on start up that seems to come from the top of the engine. i suspect the cam is running dry untill the oil reaches it. is there any known problems with this engine? it has done 138k miles but has been serviced as per the service schedule.

If your car has a timing chain, has the timing chain tensioner been checked?

thanks for the reply but it sounds more metalic, like cam rattle. wondering if it could be a hydraulic cam follower problem.
