Hi cholo24! There's a tensioner on the timing belt that is probably the source of sound you describe, or at least it certainly could be the tensioner. The point is that you don't want to gamble that it's not timing belt related. You want to get it taken care of before the problem tries to jump out of your engine to get your attention. Take it to a dealer and have it looked over especially if it's been over 60K miles since the belt has been done. Good luck!
