When the car has been sitting for a little while and i start it up again i hear some loud cracking noise that last for about 3 second then it stops, it seems like its coming from the engine itself... apart from that the engine seems to run fine...
the engine has 143k on it and no modification has been done at all its all stock...

thx in advance

I have 198K on mine, and it's made this noise to some degree since it was almost new. I'm not sure that I would say it's a 'cracking' noise, but a rattle or knock. The noise is from several things, the bottom end until the oil pressure comes up, the lifters pumping back up, and finally, the cam chain tensioners. If you let the car sit a couple of weeks, you get scared to start it, but it seems to be relatively common with these engines and there's little or no harm done (I hope) .

I would call it more of a knocking noise :)
