I was able to get it to do it, again. 5 hours sitting, this time.

That actually makes plenty of sense, because, I started it, again, last night, with the hood open, this time, and thats where the sound was coming from the chain side of the motor. I guess it just had my ears more perked up, since it sounds pretty nasty, and there have already been plenty reports of engine troubles with the Gen 2. Ive put a combined total, of over 200,000 miles on 3 Gen 1 Ecos, and never had any actual engine troubles, or even noises out of the ordinary, save from some lifter ticking.Second video highlights the cam chain sound before the tensioner takes up the slack.
Is this more pronounced since an oil change or are you still on the factory fill?
Of course, odd engine sounds before fully broken in are par for the course.......takes a while for all the bits to play nice together, some longer than others.
Since we are discussing sounds that essentially disappear after 15 seconds or so, there isn't much to fret over just yet.
