I get this sound at cold start up. I sounds like it's coming from under the car, maybe closer to the drivers area. It's like a dry pump or something starting up (not a belt sound). I'm wondering if it's:

-- starter?
-- power steering pump?
-- other?

Once the car warms up for 15 minutes, it doesn't make the sound. It's also only in cold weather (below 35 or 40 deg or so).

In the recording, it does it the first time, then not really the second time.

Thanks.
