2006 Hyundai Sonata 3.3L V6 82,000 miles.
About 2,000 miles ago I noticed a clackling/slapping noise right after I turn the car on. It only lasts for about 3 seconds and then ceases. The engine oil light also stays on while I hear the noise and then turns off after those 3 seconds are up. The noise is not as bad/loud when I turn the engine on after letting it sit for a few hours or more but when the engine is still warm and I turn it on, the noise is much louder. I read other forums that it might be the timing chain tensioner going bad but it just sounds like oil isn’t getting to where it needs to be fast enough, hence the clacking noise coincided with the oil light. I hope this doesn’t mean the engine is going to die soon.
