    It just "rattles" for about a second untill the oil pressure builds up in the valve train. Nothing to worry about. And yes if the belts squeak just replace them...or it also may be caused by a belt tensioner getting ready to go bad.

    I drive a wagon, so even if you were to outrun me, could you really brag about it?

    Then the belt gets loose, starts slapping around and then falls off...which means no alternator, no water pump, no ac, etc.

    sport265 don't listen to AWT, he has his own issues. What you are experiencing is normal, just the secondary air system kicking in.

    He was just asking what the sound is when he starts his car in the morning, there was no need to bash him.

    No need to apologize for posting and no need to bash him for not understanding a possibly cryptic answer. But OP, some of your other threads could have been answered by a search instead.
