GRINDING NOISE/sound WHEN STARTING. COLD START

hi? i have 2011 venza, four cylinders. grinding sound when ever i start the car when it is cold. when the engine is not cold i will the start the car and i will not hear the sound. if i drive somewhere and park car till the engine get cool when i come to start it i will hear the noise or sound. it happen only when starting and and it will go away. what could this be and how to go about to fix it.

in my head i am thinking the starter is not leaving the flywheel early or something else.

Secondary air injection pump normally operates at start up when engine cold.
Check noise at pump during cold start.

thank you.. this sound happens even after car is parked for 15 to 20 mins. ( e.g i drive to the store and i spent 20 mins in the store, when i come back to start it i will hear the noise. if park for like 5 mins or 10 mins, it will start up without no noise) when i come back to start it, i will hear this grinding or chain breaking or dragging sound

I have a 2009 four cylinder Venza and it started making a knocking sound when started cold. I ended up having the work done described in this Technical Service Bulletin.

The problem was that the variable valve timing assembly uses oil pressure to work properly. When you shut the engine off, the oil is supposed to stay in that assembly, but over time the seals would go bad and the oil will drain out of that assembly when the engine is not running. The next time you start the engine that assembly clatters until the oil pressure is restored.

It's hard to say whether or not that is the noise you are hearing, but it's definitely a possibility.


EDIT FROM MODERATOR:
I removed the link to the Toyota Factory service Bulletin as it is a violation of rule 17.
