04 focus make lot of noise when cold

I have a 2004 ZX3 2.3l 5spd. Whne I start the car cold it sounds fine, put in rev. to back out the drive way...fine, Put in 1st gear let out clutch and weird noise, its a rumbling sound in 1,2,3 gears. when it warms up it gets better, but if I get on the gas hard it will do it any time....I know this is hard to figure with out hearing Just woundering if their has been a common problem that somebody can let me know to start looking....Whne I picked it up I took to mechanic and had the plugs, fuel filter, took the intake off and cleaned, good look over while on lift and new tires...Clutch does not seeem to slip, Throw out bearing?
