    Default whining engine for first 10 mins ?

    my 2.2sri sounds almost electric for the first 10 mins of it running then fades away is this normal?
    only when engine is starting from cold if im honest but with being new to vectra c and googling stuff about the engine im afraid of the timing chain or the oil injector problem although my cars an 03 plate.

    help or advice welcome lads/ladies
