See I would consider myself a home mechanic, but I’m definitely no professional. For months I’ve been trying to tack down this noise on my 2006 2.5 SL. When i fire up the motor and it idles up when it’s cold out, it starts making a not crazy loud, but quite noticeable noise from the motor, it sounds like rattling like very loud rattling, I thought it was the heat shield so I taped it up. Turns out it wasn’t. Any ideas?

How many miles on it? Has the timing chain ever been replaced? They wear out and have slack causing the rattling noise. Eventually after warming up the noise dies down a bit.
