It makes the noise the most when I first start it, but when it warms up you can still hear it but it isn't as loud. I took it to our local MB specialist, and he said it could be the waterpump, or the timing chain. He couldn't tell because he said the timing chain is right behind the waterpump. I think it could possibly be the water pump because when the car gets warm, the noise is more muted. I think a timing chain would make the noise all the time. It is a rapping sound that is much louder in the moring. The timing chain replacment will be $800 + and I really don't want to spend that kind of money yet. If it's the water pump, the cost will be much less. Thanks for your reply...I just wonder what it is? -Ryan
