I recently purchased an '06 Frontier XE. Occasionally it will make a loud ticking noise shortly after starting the motor. The noise lasts for about 10 seconds then stops. It doesn't occur every time but is very annoying when it does. Dealer says it has to do with a "self-test" of the Airbag and is normal. Unacceptable. Any Ideas??

I have a 2007 Frontier NISMO 4x4. The mechanic at the dealership said that its the timing chain that causes the clicking noise. Something about the chain rubbing with the plastic guides and overtime with wear and tear eventually will start rubbing metal to metal with the guides. Of course i'm not a mechanic but it sounds legit.
