    Default 3.2 cold start query

    When starting my car from cold it sounds as rough as anything its very loud as if the manifold is blowing and after few mins sounds nice and smooth, is this normal? the car is still under warranty.

    Also when i turn the key there is a squeak which can be heard when i press the throttle, again this goes when the car has warmed up. what could that be?

    I'm not sure if the 3.2 is one of them but some cars have an auxiliary air pump that operates when the engine is first started to keep the emissions down. I had one of these on my last car and it can sound quite noisy first thing in the morning.
