My wife, s 2004 Dodge intrepid 2.7 engine makes a noise like a hydraulic lifter, only louder right after starting it. It goes away in 1 or 2 seconds. It disapears so rapidly I can't locate where it comes from. Have always done the maintenance at earlier than suggested intervals. And used mostly semi synthetic oil. Could this noise be the timing chain? Thank you in advance.

Could be but also could be a rod or main bearing that has a lot of play.
