western99 is an unknown quantity at this point
So here is the problem - I am here in Toronto and the weather this week has been around -20 degrees celcius. When I start my car, I get this weird growling noise for about 5 seconds and it goes away. But here is the weird part - Sometimes when I am driving I can hear it again for about 5 seconds. I think that it may have to do with the belts but I am not sure. Perhaps the steering pump?? All I know is that I hate hearing this noise when I start the car up. It only happens when it is cold outside. Does anyone know what this could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a 95 525ia. Thanks

when i start my car in extreme cold,i hear a loud squeal, and when i turn the wheel the tone changes so its the power steering pump.
next time you start up turn the wheel and listen to see if the noise changes.
