Sorry, but you're going to have to be a little more specific; 'heavy' is pretty non-descriptive.

Is it clattering, booming, rasping, groaning, whining, growling? Is the noise coming from under the hood, under the car, out the tailpipe?

Where is the noise coming from? Is it most noticeable inside or outside the car?

Depending on the temperature, the car runs at a fast idle when it is first started and after in warms a little it slows down to normal idle speed. Maybe this is what you're hearing.

Here's an Update , the noise was coming from the A/C compressor I had it replaced & now the car sounds great & is running well.
