The sound is more of a grinding of metal.
once I start it a couple of times it goes away.
But when I start it after a while of sitting in the garage it makes the grinding noise.
Does anyone have any idea what it might be?

can you tell what area its coming from?

you can view the flywheel, you have to take off a few brackets and a plate, but its possible without pulling the whole tranny out.

could just be a pully or belt or something along those lines though.

just hope its not your oil pump!

no its a grinding noise like metal or something and it only happens when I start the car and then it's fine.
When I first start it after it has been sitting for awhile it makes the noise, but once I start again right away it goes away.

I'm still having the grinding noise problem when starting.
I have taken things out and looked around but I still can't figure it out.
I'm going to change my transmission fluid, do you think that could be it? What things could occur if my fluid needs to be change. Would this grinding noise happen because of my fluid needing ot be changed.

If it was the tranny you would hear it more under you than in the engine compartment.

take the starter off and look at the teeth. if they are fine look in the hole where the starter went and look at the teeth on the flywheel and get a friend to turn over the crankshaft on the opisit side on the crank pully bolt. and inspect all the teeth.
