Hi there. Usually, noises coming from the transmission at start up are caused by low transmission fluid or dirty transmission fluid that needs to be changed. If the transmission fluid level is okay and the fluid is not bad, then it's possible that there is internal damage within the transmission that is causing the noise. I would have a local expert, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose the transmission noise in person and advise you on the correct repair.
