Re: noisy when starting from cold

or... Is the oil just all in the bottom of the motor for the first few seconds, until it starts to circulate, then quiets down?

Where's your oil level?

Re: noisy when starting from cold

if the noise goes away once the motor is warmed, chances are it needs valve work. i would assume i has near 20k or more miles on it & the valves need redone. you know its this b/c once the metal expands with heat the noise will go away..
