I just bought a used 2009 Rav4 with 80k miles and the ?new? 2.5l inline 4 engine from a local Toyota dealership and the car was fine for the first few weeks, but recently whenever I turn over the engine I get a nasty knocking/Dry engine noise for only 1 second and it doesn't come back while driving. I called up the dealership and they checked the car out and gave me a free oil change to fix the problem but that didn't help. The dealership said just to bring the car in for oil changes regularly and the noise doesn't affect performance at all. Has anyone had this problem and know a fix because it's embarrassing to leave In Front of your co workers or neighbors with that noise. Ill try to link a video with me turning the engine on to simulate the noise. Thank you in advance I don't expect an answer if the guys at Toyota can't find one, but more insight would be great!

Here is the link of the video, the start up is around the 16 second mark but it can't be heard with low volume.
