Slapping or ticking? Could be timing belt tensioner or water pump? " noise" is vague description :)

My wifes 2008 toyota highlander had a noise at start up , then went away about 1-2 seconds later.
When driving back to the city, something happened(later found out) that there was a piston or something that blew out a whole in top of the engine block.
almost $5k to fix it. It had approx 146K on it (km's)

Take that for what its worth

I have a noise at start up (more like 5 minutes)) that sounds like a geiger counter on my 2004 Highlander. Did it sound like that? Otherwise it performs well.
