Did anyone get to the bottom of the engine rattle on startup from cold? Is it the hydraulic tappet adjusters starving from oil when the engine is left overnight?
Mine did it again today.

Talk about coincidence!! I have just this minute returned from my local paper shop in my MINI to see another MINI parked there the same spec as mine! (Bugger. I thought I was the only one around here!!)The owner saw me outside and after the usual "what do you think?" he said,
"Just one thing. Does your engine rattle like hell from cold?"
:confused:
