XJR NOISE ON START UP?

1995 Jaguar Other

I have a 1995 Jaguar XJR that makes a rather loud knocking/clicking noise when started. The car has 120,000 miles. The noise only occurs about 15% of the time and only lasts for a few seconds. There has been no effect on the performance of the car. I am thinking it might be caused by slack in the timing chain and that I should replace the tensioner. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
