The sound baffled my mechanic fellow also. The coolant level was fine, the transmission filter and oil got changed even if he said it's only a slight chance it could be from there. In the end, one morning I had
to take to my friend's garage so he could hear first hand when it was cold. By the time I got out of the car for 10 sec to check something, the engine oil got all over the concret floor in a nick! It was the oil filter gasket. He took a new one. Put it on. Started the engine. Boom! The new one got blown also. It seems the car has a problem with some oil valve in the actual "base" of the filter. Any ideas where I can get one of those that won't cost an arm and a leg? I hope that will solve the mistery sound aswell. Thx for your interest anyway.
