Recently purchased a 2007 2.7 sport. When I first start it it seems very loud. Nothing bad just a lot louder than it should be I think. It only seems to last a few seconds when First moving off then once it changes gear it sounds quieter? Is this normal?

Don;t know where you are located but I am guessing this is a diesel variant? Is it the engine clatter that is louder or is it the fan that is louder? Does it sounds like a lack of oil metallic sound? Perhaps the previous owner put the wrong oil in it.Too light of oil will drain down too fast. It only takes seconds for oil pressure to come up and circulate thus actually lubricating and quieting the valve train.
