    crap bolted and welded together....
    it happens to me, when the metal gets cold it gets stiffer and shrinks. So noise is going to happen. Hell when it gets cold out where i live the RxR tracks shrink and crack apart in spots. Just because of this whole law of physics or dynamics im smarter then you'll ever be junk. lol

    My truck has always made a weird vibrating noise in low gears, but it just seems to be getting worse with the cold weather. I think I need to get it checked out.

    Yep. All the vehicles I have ever operated do this when cold.

    What concerns me most are the extra few turnovers required before combustion.
