Cold engine Whining?

Does anyone living in a cold environment hear a whining coming from up front when you start your car in the morning? When my engine is cold soaked, it makes a whining noise, as soon as it is warm, it goes away. I took it to the shop. They replaced the power steering pump, and it still does it. So I just took it back today. I think it is just a tensioner or an idler pully, but I cant pin it down. Its pretty loud though.

my car does that too. i live in iowa, its not really getting cold enough here to make it whine but when i was parking it outside every night and it was goin single digit temp it would whine until engine started to warm up a lil bit. i read a post a while back but i dont remember what that whine was about, i remember reading it and saying ok i dont have to worry about taking it in...sorry i cant help much more on the topic, will search around though.
