TIMING BELT NOISE

1998 Toyota Rav4

Noises problem
1998 Toyota Rav4 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 130 K miles

Upon cold start there is a noise coming from behind the timing belt cover. Raising the RPMs a little it goes away. No noise with engine at operating temperature. It has done this for 4 years.
