Hi Scotty! My mom & I have two Honda Accord 2008 4 cycl. (LX & EX-L, 90k & 130k miles) and both have loud rattling noise for 1-2 seconds at cold starts (when most of the engine oil is drained to the oil pan). The noises are getting louder & longer now after it began a few years back.I have done some research on the internet & a lot of people said that it is the VTC actuator that failed. Is this true? If so, will it cost a lot to get this fixed by a mechanic? I am so worried that this can lead to some catastrophic engine failure...Thank you!
that often is true, but make a video, post it here, i will analyze the noise. PRAY it's not piston slap
