Hi zaki_iq,

Can you explain the noise in more details?
How does it sound like? Whirring, screeching, grinding etc.

Does it occur when in Park or neutral?

Well it is has some sort of strong whirring sound.
Well if I start the car still in neutral and P and the car is cold it does not make any sound. If I put A/C on it doesnot make the sound either. However if I put car in D or R it starts making loud sound which goes away if I do some driving.

On contrary if I start the car and keep it to idle till I can see the water coming out of the exhaust or the car gets warm, then it does not make any sound.
Thank you once again for your help

Sounds like the torque converter ( TC ) is making the noise. You might have a failing TC on hand.

Did you check the transmission fluid level and condition?
