Are you talking about the metallic clattering or the random exhaust pops? Both are probably the result of 05/30 oil draining down for several days and letting everything inside get a little dry, like the hydraulic lifters and the cam chain and tensioner.

But guessing noises is always a crap shoot anyway.

More the metallic noise, it was strange Because the car sits all winter and starts up in the spring with no issues, been running good since so Ill just hope it keeps quiet all it has now is a light bbq igniter tick

IMHO, pull the valve covers asap and check for valvetrain issues before driving the car anywhere.....
