noise on cold start-up

heya guys,

just noticed in my el 2 xr8, that when i start her from cold, there's a bit of a noise that comes right after i start her, but then goes away. Kind of a grinding noise.. only happens when it's cold though..

anyone else notice this with their cars?

Clutch cable adjusted too tight ???

Re: noise on cold start-up

It's not lifter noise, it's a grinding noise that lasts for about a second, then goes away.. I know what lifter noise is from my XR6.. There is none of that, just more of a grinding noise for a sec, then it goes away..

Starter motor not disengageing properly ???
Clutch cable adjusted too tight ???
Cover over clutch fork rattling / loose ????

Those all sound reasonable, i'll check it out..

Cheers
