Change engine oil and get a oil filter with a anti bleed back valve. this is called a dry start. no oil is in the bearings until the oil pressure picks up.

I would look more towards the belt tensioner. Look at it when idling, Then when some one puts it in gear. If it is jumping, which they do. See if it is coinciding with the clicking.

Rumbling noise

This problem may be attributed to the tire rubber being hard on a cold morning and softens as the heat in the tires warm the rubber allowing them to be pliable on the road. The hard rubber generates the noise that is transferred through the hard rubber mounts and will do so until all the rubbers heat a little.

Gurgling noise in enjine

There's some air in the system somewhere. Park it uphill, cold, open the cap and run it and fill it at the same time.

Mine makes a bit of this noise sometimes. It runs fine and I don't worry much about it.-------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2000 s80 volvo transmission shifts fine but in park or nueteral it makes a rumbling noise goes away when put into gear. it did make a jolt and bang when i pulled out from the intersection thanks...

when you are sitting idle and you press the clutch without putting it into gear does the noise go? if so you will need to fit a new clutch kit.
