    Our 3.5L V6 in our ’05 SE always races on cold starts, it doesn’t start at an idle speed. Also, when it first starts, you can hear that it takes several seconds before the oil finally gets to where it needs to be and the engine sound changes and quiets down. Having had a ’01 GMC pick-up with a 6.0L V8 that was bought back unsolicited for piston slap, this 3.5L Nissan sounds eerily similar on start up. Does anyone else have a 3.5L V6 that does this?
