Very strange,
My truck is only 2 weeks old. Been to the dealer now 3 times. I had to leave it today because every time I start the car for the first 15 minutes, every time I hit about 2000 rpms, I hear this god awfull rattle/grinding sound from the engine/underneath area.
Thank god it made the noise when I had the advisor in the car with me today and I raised hell.

At least they gave me a rental, after a little bit of yelling.
Anyone else experience any kind of noise like this??

It does seem to go away after running for a little while.

The Air conditioner?

Hey HEAT!

Don't know if this is the same thing that is happening to me BUT it sure sounds like it! I have noticed this when I started the Mada as well....but I only heard it RIGHT when the engine came on (so the noise didn't last long).
ANYway, in my case it is the air conditioner...I have noticed that if I left the air on from the day before and start the car I hear that awful noise. The funny thing is that the HIGHER the air is on the louder the noise! So, RIGHT before I start the truck I make sure the air is off....or on low.
