I just purchase this car after a week I notice valves chattering during start ups, It's louder during the first couple of seconds than a little quieter,is this nomal for this type of car or do this motor need major work.I took it to two different dealers, one dealer said that I should change to ester oil to quiet the valves, the other dealer said it was ok to drive with no problems because he see them like that all the time.
