Jut something I noticed recently, when I start my car up, for the first few min, I swear it sounds like a diesel engine. Any ideas on what that might be? Thanks

If you wish an answer, it would be best if you tell members year, engine, trans type, etc. And it would be helpful if you post up a youtube video, with sound, of the noise when it's running and include when the noise stops.

might be dew to lose rocker arms... once the oil viscosity lowers, oil pressure lowers which could lead to this...
check where the sound is coming from the engine, if its in the valve covers there you go...
