No idea without hearing it. Make sure the oil filter has an anti-drain back valve in it, some cheaper oil filters do not have this and can cause low oil pressure problem on start up. You can also try some STP or Power Punch to the engine oil, if you have some slight wear with the engines bearings it will help but not cure the noise.

Can i take your email address to sent you the video so you can hear the noise.


Try that but the audio must be high quality and focused so you don't get a lot of background noise.
