SOURCE: Engine sounds loud on cold start

It is normal for an engine to run at much higher RPM's when they are cold and that will make it sound louder.

SOURCE: Car makes funny noise upon starting on very cold days

Have your power steering belt checked and adjusted, or replaced if worn.

SOURCE: When starting up the Kia, screaming belts sound is heard

Hi. This might sound obvious but it isn't just the alternator belt requiring adjustment or replacement is it? Sounds very much like it from your description. Forgive me if youv'e already ruled that out.

SOURCE: 06 Suzuki Forenza make a loud clicking noise.

Your car is from 2006 how come it needs a timing belt ( do you drive 20K per year? ). What is wrong with the drive belt. The sound from belt is not a clicking noise.
Any way try to avoid that dealer. What a baloney.

When you start the car, open the hood try to identify where the noise comes from.

1-If it comes from the top engine, open your oil cap, to see if oils splattered from mechanical movements. Usually oil is not enough then it takes time to travel to the cam shaft and the lifters that why after making noise a while then the engine becomes quite since it gets lubricated. How long have you been from last oil changed?

2-If it comes from the front engine try to identify if it comes from Power steering or AC. Check Power-steering fluid to see it it needs filled up. Check this before starting the engine.
Try to turn on AC to see if the noise more or less so you can determine the AC clutch is bad.

Hope you can find the source for a good fix.

SOURCE: my car makes a loud rumbling noise when i

I think you better have the front end checked. It could be anything causing the noise,
wheel bearing
cv joint
or any front end component

It could be the fuel pump pressurizing the system. Does the sound stop after a few seconds? If it is the fuel pump then it is a normal sound. Fuel pumps will resonate in the tank when you are low on gas, making them sound louder. If it is more than a hum then I would get it checked out.
