That squeak/rattle may be important. pull your oil cap off when the engine is making that noise and see if you can tell is the noise INSIDE the valve cover. Very important. I have run into 2 Metro's that lost oil to the cam, they both had a squeaky noise inside the valve cover. One lost his cam, it broke right between #2 & #3 cam bearings. Please check soon and give me(really you) peace of mind. S.
