Matts right, mine sounds like a bag of spanners when it's cold with its piston slap. I think if it was something terminal like bottom end,it would be a constant noise,that would give you that sinking feeling that its about to die and empty your bank account

Does sound like piston slap as my old engine had it (ran fine for 5k mls until I replaced it) and normally big end noise wouldn't go away once warmed and would increase in volume with the revs .

if it is a "sticky lifter" tappets a oil flush and a quality oil might resolve it , what grade /brand of oil was used during the service ?
