i have a 93 mx-6 LS with only 67,000 on the odometer, yet when i first start it in the mornings when its cold, its makes all sorts of godawful noise that sounds like the damn things gonna fall apart, yet after 4 minutes, it purrs like a kitten and its tough to tell whether the engine is even on any ideas on waht cuases that initail startup noise?

It's the HLA's they will make noise untill the car warms up. It won't hurt the car; it just sounds bad. If you want to get rid of it switch to Mobil 1 Tri-Syn. That's what I did and no more noise.

I had a similar problem to that and it ended up being the friction gears. Make any sense? The work was done under warranty and the noise has never returned since! Total cost was $845CAN.
