I've been getting the same metallic scraping sound myself. However, mine occurs as I turn the key slowly. There's no pattern to it. Naturally, I won't be able to replicate the issue if I took it to the dealership.Id like to bump this thread because it seems that I now have this issue. only on cold starts, i hear a metallic scraping noise. It seems to happen a second after the engine has started up and only last for a split second. I have enough oil and im using a Honda oil filter...i cant really tell where its coming from...but its sounds like it may be coming from the bottom of the engine..??? i could be wrong. any ideas?
