I have viewed your very informative "auto-rattling or rattle-sound" page and it didnt cover a noise at ignition. I drive a 2004 Subaru Liberty GT. For a few years now, every few times I start the car, a rattling sounds occurs then dissipates. It occurs for 2 seconds in total. Car starts up fine every time but the noise only occurs every few times I start the car and it can happen at anytime of the day when the car is hot or cold.
Subaru have checked the heat shields and extractors and there's nothing loose there. I hope that made sense. Any advice would be appreciated.
