Not sure if your car has the AIR pump or not, the AIR pump only runs a couple minute upon cold start-up. Next time you start up on a cold engine, get out and look in the engine bay and watch the electro-clutch pulleys (if AIR pump equipped, you'd have two one for A/C the other for the pump). Could be the AIR pump is noisy or needs a new belt.
