2016 Toyota Camry cold start gear rattle - something to worry about? I JUST bought a 2016 Camry with the 2AR-FE 2.5 L engine (50,000 km) and notice that it rattles loudly for a second or two when it starts, after sitting overnight. Some told me to get it fixed asap while the dealer refuses to fix. An older TSB was issued for it and advises to get it fixed after a mere 1 second rattle. If left alone, will this cause a serious engine failure, as some say?

Take it to a dealership that actually cares, sounds like the people you are dealing with are idiots. A TSB is a TSB, they don’t just write these things for fun.

Sounds like lack of oil in cam area? Or bearings getting pressure? It can't be good over time. Happy new year😉
