Weirdness when cold

Everytime I start the car cold, for a minute or so it acts really weird. Turning out of the driveway of a morning and out of work of an afternoon I get a loud grinding noise from the left hand front. However only for the first one or two turns, which is really weird.

The first one or two take offs are really weird too. It feels like one of my back tyres are flat and the car vibrates. Started happening when I put the BBM on.

However they only happen from a cold start and go away almost as soon as they happen. It was suggested a faulty ECT might be somehow causing the take off problem, but changing it has done nothing.

Re: Weirdness when cold

If it is left to idle for about 5-10mins till warmed up, does it still act funny, or behave as expected.
