120 prado knocking noise on cold start up.
Hi all, I have a 2003 120 series Toyota Prado.
I have noticed all of a sudden on cold start up a metal knocking noise.
It seems to be coming from the front lower part of the engine.
It will be fine for a week or two then all of a sudden it comes back.
I have read on older threads this seems to be a common problem. While a lot of people offer advice there has been no actual solution.
If anyone's got any knowledge of the fault it would be greatly appreciated to hear from you.

What engine is this? 4.7 V8? 4.0 V6? Diesel? Usually when you get a metal knocking noise on startup it's usually piston slap which isn't anything to really worry about. It's possible it's something else, but usually that something else will stick around after startup.
