When I first start my car their is a loud vibrating noise under the hood, sounds like an part of the exhaust, maybe a heat sheild or something. It goes away after driving for a while and every thing heats up, any ideas ?

    Its hard to speculate what a noise could be without being able to hear the noise first hand. It could quite possibly be a cracked or warped exhaust manifold that indeed as it warms up could cause the noise to go away. Best to get it checked out.

    Yes it was the motor mount on the passenger side. I replaced it myself.
