Have an '09 Forrester with the non-turbo motor. On cold start up in the morning, the motor makes some pretty serious noise. I'm having trouble pinpointing it - it's not the same valve clatter that the older motors have. I've got an '02 Legacy with the typical valve train clatter on cold start, it's definately not like that.

Anyone have knowledge of what this could be, anything to check? Or is this just something that I'll have to learn to live with on the newer motor, just like I live with the valve train clatter on the older one?
