Well I've my truck for three years now and I'm mostly pleased with it. I have just over 26k miles and no major issues. Mostly recalls and having to have my front fender replaced due to rust. One issue that just recently came up was a loud clacking noise at startup after I left the truck for a few weeks without starting. It went away after a few minutes but really worried me. I started it again a few hours later and it happened again but not as loud or for as long. When I started it the next day there was no noise. Any idea what this might be? My first thought was piston slap.

Thanks,

Pete
