Loud Startup
During cold weather, by 2008 Focus is very loud for the first minute or two, then quiets down significantly. During summer, it is much quieter, but we are now back to the cooler mornings. I expect some kind of exhaust leak, but can't find anything. Any ideas to troubleshoot?

are the RPMs between 1500-2000 right after it turns over?
