Re: Weird noise on cold start - GTV TS
There has been a recent Thread on a similar topic, a search might help you.
On the first start of the day mine makes a metallic sort of noise for a SECOND or two, a lot of others apparently do so as well. Mine has been like this for almost three years now. This short lasting noise doesn't bother me, best not to succumb to Alfachondria, but if it was lasting for more than a few seconds I would be a little concerned.
I think that the conclusion on the other Thread was that the likely culprit was the starter motor and as I believe that it's a bit of a pig to replace it's best left until it has to be done. Sadly if yours is the same problem and the noise is lasting for minutes it seems that that time may have come........
Of course it could be something else entirely, a second opinion may be helpful.
Good luck with it.
