Default "Rumble" noise when starting

Hello All -

2008 Saturn VUE XR with 96K.

Started the car this morning and heard a strange "rumbling" sound coming from underneath the passenger side. It did go away and only happens intermittently. Haven't had a chance to get under it to take a look but thought I would ask here first for any suggestions. Otherwise the car drives perfectly normal.

Seriously though. I looked underneath and nothing seems loose our out of place and I have not been able to replicate the problem. Very strange.

YOu asked the question... Maybe a MM decided to herniate. Try( gently) to jack up the engine half a tad( a skosh is too much!) - wood block under the pan please
....and watch how the MM's respond, or check all your past work in the area - something's loose?

Didnít even think about an engine mount, thanks for the suggestion.
