Hi everybody,
I just bought a 2000 GT-S 6-Speed. I'm slowly getting the hang of stick on this car. I just was wondering about somthing. When I start up the car (when it's cold) i get a sort of, i guess, chirping noise. But after it is warmed up it goes away. What could it be?

Please let me know.

Mine used to do that as well on start up until it got warmed up. After a while it started doing it constantly and turned out it was the belt tensior which I had replace under warranty.

Mine has started to do this only when I first start it up and it's damp or humid outside. I have 42k miles... will they cover this under the powertrain warranty, since there's a TSB for it?

no, it's only covered under the 3/36 warranty, and remember the difference between TSB's and recalls. Recalls MUST be honored regardless of warranty status, TSB's have limitations which usually include a warranty status clause (such as most Toyota TSB's)

Unless you can get your dealer to cover it as a "goodfaith" warranty deal, you're stuck with the bill.

mine made that chirping noise in the winter and i bought some of that belt softener and i t did the trick havent heard it since..maybe your belts are getting dry.....

maybe it is your belt tensioner but try this first it will only cost like three bucks, then worry about the more expensive fixes
