About 2,000 miles ago I changed the timing belt on my 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 and it's an old car so it's always had some kind of rattle but this is a new one I haven't heard before and I can't help but think it may be something to do with the timing belt. It was my first time doing a timing belt, timing belt kit was from Gates and came with new tensioner and roller. It's definitely coming from the front of the engine where the belts are.

Take the accessory drive belt off and start the car.If you still hear something it is a timing component.
