Question type: Maintenance & Repair

At the start of engine of a Montero Sport in the morning, it makes cranking noise continuously when the engine is running and after it runs for some minutes, the noise will subside and the engine will continue to run smoothly all day. It has been doing his for some months.

Cranking noise? Do you mean the starter will engage after the truck is started and engine running?

The noise sounds like an engine knock when I start it in the mornings but after it runs for some minutes, it regularizes itself and work normally. The first time I noticed it, I thought probably the Oil Pump did not circulate oil but when I discovered that at times, the noise doesn't come up. I am beginning to wonder that something could be wrong that needs urgent attention and that if it not fixed on time, it could destroy the engine totally. I discussed it with my mechanic but he said if only I could leave it with him overnight but my job did not allow me to do so.

Your right, it's best to have someone diagnose the noise, I'd only be guessing. Hopefully you can find some time to drop the car off with the mechanic.
