My car sounds like airplane taking off on cold starts. It sounds like it when parked or driving. Increasing revs gets louder. Could it be alternator bearings? The sound is hard to find where its coming from.     Water pump replaced due to bad pulley. Alternator clutch pulley replaced. New belt on. Only pulley has slight movement is AC compressor pulley.

Question
Hello Everyone, Just joined this forum. Would like some help with an issue that we have with our 2006 Hyundai Accent GS (107,000 km). We have a code P0732. We had a leaky transmission gasket which we fixed. We had also a small engine coolant temperature leak. Changed thermostat and gasket. Leak solved. (Car has no engine coolant temperature sensor). We also changed oils because we were over due (oil was getting black). We have synthetic oil. Up until one hour ago when we test drove it, car would hesitate at initial start up. Only when we would shut the engine and restart a few seconds or minute later everything go back to normal and drives fine, some minor hesitation. I also realized that with an oil change, engine perform better and seemed to work out some internal blockage in the system. My question is, when I fixed the transmission gasket leak with a new pan on my transmission, the mechanic added only 3 small bottles of fluid in the transmission (about less than 3 liters). My car manual says it takes 6.1 Liters. Should I add more transmission fluid, perhaps its low on fluid which causes the start up hesitation and how should I add it? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
