How long after startup will sound persist? Does it happen when driving?

I don't know exactly how to define "initial start-up." I guess it could vary depending on how cold it was and how long the vehicle was sitting, but I don't know for sure.

Mine did this when I had it. You start it after a cold night and it would sound like a VW desiel for a few seconds. Then it would stop.
