    noise when starting

    i dont know if recently the cold contributed to the noise but upon start-up there sometimes is whats sounds to be a clunking ?knocking? noise coming from the drivers side engine bay. if i rev it up over like a 1500rpm it goes or when it warms up goes away. i dont think its anything that serious but wat do u guys think.

    Piston slap is common. If it's piston slap I'd not worry.

    I have the same problem and it sounds like piston slap to a T but I've heard that can do some damage over time. GM had a serious problem in a bunch of their 2000-2001 model year cars. So can it really cause a lot of damage over time?
