It's probably one the vanos that is bad. It happens when cold because your oil is thicker at start. As the oil gets hot it gets thinner, and flows better and the noise goes away.

The leak was from a 3 way hose under the intake manifold. It's on the left side kind of hard to see but it is there.
I think it's a common problem as I have seen a few now from different people.

My fix was to change my oil to 5-40 and it worked for me but if yours is smoking with 10-60 it must mean the seals are really bad and need to be replaced.

I agree I just did my tranny (thanks Herb) and it was doing the same thing.
Once it warmed up it got a bit better. But when it was cold it didn't want to move.

I Changed my Mechiatronic sleeve and it took me longer to do that than the whole tranny drain and fill. It's not easy getting that thing in and out especially if you don't have a shop lift.

Only 3 Quarts came out and only 3 went back in. No I didn't do it when the engine was running does that matter? I did run it through all gears and let the car warm up and rechecked it was still full.
