In cold weather or when the car hasn't been started in a few days, on starting, I hear a metallic grinding in the engine. Today when it happened I smelled a burning or hot smell coming through the vents. The car runs great otherwise. The dealer hasn't been able to locate the problem, but the car is usually warm when they see it.
Thanks for any help

so the deal is my thermostat stuck causing the truck to overheat so i replaced it. after replacing the thermostat the truck would overheat when at idol or speeds under 40mph and the heater would go cold. i took the truck to the dodge dealer and they pressure tested for leaks and found none and burped the system. a couple of weeks later the truck started the same issues again (overheating at low rpms) the other day i got in my truck for a short trip and the truck ran just fine, i even let it idol for a while and no overheat and not cold air. so what is causing it to intermittently overheat?
