2007 VUE 3.5L
Dizzy Strange Noise When Cold, in 1st Gear

Note this is a 2007 AWD automatic. When it's cold, under 45F, when I first start moving I get this funny scraping/growling noise, and it seems like it's bouncing off the torque converter, preventing it from shifting into 2nd gear.

I can't describe it any better than that. After it warms up it goes away, but it's getting worse. This has been an issue that I ignored for a few years because it does go away.

Thoughts?

is the tranny fluid at the proper level?

perhaps it's something other than the tranny?

1)check out the motor mount.. they have some strange symptoms, including noises, vibrations, etc.. when cold as well.. The passenger side mount is famous for failure.. and is very easy to switch out..

2) heat shields make strange sounds as well when cold...

3) the resonator on these cars were known to have rattling type issues due to baffle inside..

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Tranny was just serviced. Still have the noise. I think it has something to do with the Torque Converter. But not sure.
