Cold Start Noise

Hello Everyone....I have a '97 TJ Sahara Model with AT and 145K miles. For a while now, on cold days when starting the engine there is a slight screech (no belts), but the disturbing thing is when I put it in gear it sounds like I'm trying to use the starter when the thing is already running (terrible noise). This only happens for about 1-2 seconds and only happens on cold start. If I leave the Jeep warm up I have no noise....Any Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have a similar noise when it is cold out. mines an 06 2.5 with about 14K miles on it. sounds like a whining or whooshing noise at 3/4 throttle for the first few minutes when its first started when its cold. usually by the first mile its gone, I think its just the intake changeover that runs the air over the exaust before it goes into the engine to warm it up faster. I don't know the actual name of it.

That sounds just like the noise I have, but mine is only noticeable when I put it in gear. My tranny fluid is fine. Maybe the mount, but I don't think that would explain the screeching.
Any other help out there? Thanks in advance for any responses.
