    Does anone have any idea what this may be when I start my truck in the morning after it sat all night it makes a grinding noise at the start. It only does it in the morning when it is cold?

    If you are referring to after you put it in drive and release the break. This is the ABS activiating. (So i was told by the dealer at the first oil change)

    If the AC is on and/or the vent is in DeFog setting, then the AC compressor can make an ugly noise on the first start of the day.

    Search around on the forum. I saw a thread a couple of days ago about someone having odd noise when starting up cold. Once the truck/engine was warmed a little it went away,

    It turned out to be one of the air intakes where it it fastens to the quarter panel I believe. It was fixed by putting some gasket material and / or just tightening the clamp.

    HTH
