sounds like it needs a valve adjustment

p.s.: there's no timing chain, it's belt driven

Actually, sounds like the tensioner pulley is gonna die. Get the car to the dealer, should be an easy warantee claim.

Where does it sound like it's coming from? could be anything from a pulley to a heat shield what we know of it.

Eric v2.1:

The noise is definitely from the valve train, or a tensioner related problem. But, i do have a vibration noise(like a heatshield) on deccelleration. Still trying to figure that one out too.
Do you know of anyones tensioners going w/20,000 miles?

Ciper:

I believe i've actually heard of some one doing that, the other day. Still, a bit torn on trying it.

thanks all for the help thus far.
any other help is appreciated.

I think I have a tensioner issue also. It sounds like a diesel on cold starts...
