Engine Noise At Start-Up

Has anyone had any issues hearing any weird noises at car start-up from the engine?

My 13' Elantra Sedan has around 3K on it and a weird noise comes from the engine at start-up. Sometimes it goes away quickly and sometimes it will linger for a while. Any ideas?

Likely normal, start reading here:

I think I have the same noise from mine (2013 elantra sedan)...I havent been bohered by it since the noise seems to go away rather fast & its unpredictable so not worth taking in to check when the odds are no one will hear anything.

It will be interesting to see if this becomes something people complain about.

Mine was built in Feb if that helps anything, maybe its a defect, maybe not.

You don't honestly think that "wierd noise" is a good enough description for anybody to give back any useful advice, do you ??

This is why I went to the other thread that 5.4FX4 posted the link to. Exact sound on that thread where 2 videos are posted is the same noise my Elantra is making. I did post a comment on that thread regarding the oddness of Hyundai just saying it's 'normal' and not giving us owners a more specific answer.
