Hi, I have a Skoda Octavia 1.4 TSI (122HP) Feb 2010 registered and done 70000 kms. When I start the car I can hear rattling sound for 10-15 seconds and then its gone. No issues with driving the car. Does it has something to do with the timing chain (not sure if it is belt or chain).
That engine does indeed have a timing chain and from your description it sounds like the issue could well be with the chain rattling on start-up. Bring the car to a good mechanic to confirm and have the work done as soon as you can.
