Default Knock noise comming from front of engine(maybe starter?sounds like card in propeller

Well about 3 out of every 4 times I start my car up, it will start up fine, and after about a minute or two the noise starts. It can be heard in neutral, 1st, and 2nd . The faster/higher the rev the faster the actual (something hitting a propeller constantly)/knocking noise gets. After I start and restart the car about 2-4 times the sound always goes away and wont return until it has been at rest for at least 8 hours.Im just trying to keep it from ever happening because it sounds terrible. When I popped the hood my friend and I think we pinpointed it to a specific area but are not postive. Right where the ac tensioner belt is..that top pulley and contraction located directly behind it that has a calsonic sticker i believe (starter?) is where we believe the noise is comming from. Anyways I was just wondering if anyone has experienced this noise/problem, and know what it is and how to fix it. ( its been going on for almost a year)
