In the recent mornings the V doesnt like the cold. The tire sensors are blinking and makes a weird noise when i first start it. After about 15mins it warms up and seems normal. Any one else have a slight problem in the morning cold.

You are experiencing a TPS warning that your tire pressure is below 25psi. Tire pressure is recommended to be at 30psi cold.

Temp here in MA has been about 8F the past two mornings. On both days I got a weird noise from the left front of the car that lasted about two seconds. Hard to describe "grunt" or isolate (definately forward of the fiewall.) Could be the serpentine belt I guess. Any ideas?

I have the same problem as capecodctsv. It also is very difficult to put it into gear when cold and then of course the tires are not very good when cold and the rear door has trouble shutting when cold. I guess I am lucky that the radio works when cold.

i had the same noise come from my car the other day, it was the coldest day of the year and it sounded really bad, but only for a second or two. also i have a very hard time shifting until the car is warm. solution for now is sticking the v in the garage(not heated) until it gets warm agian.

Does anyone know if our transmission fluid is synthetic?
