Sounds like the belts need tightening or replaced

If it go's away,most of the time its the belts. Leave the engine off pop the hood,look at the belts do they look worn split or frayed. Next morning pop the hood,start the car and verify that its coming from the belts. If so have them tighten or replace them. To keep it cheap get the belts from the dealer and have someone put them on for less money.Labor at the Bens dealer will kill you.

Save even more money and buy the belt from a car spares shop cos they usually sell oem stuff a lot cheaper than the dealer, next in the grand money saving scheme, fit the thing yourself! Look at the engine, draw a diagram of the pulleys and the direction of the belt. Now just locate the belt tensioner, slacken it off and swap the belts. Tighten the tensioner tight enough that the belt won't slip off the pulleys and give her a whirl.

I have learned from haynes manuals on my benz. It took 7 manuals of various types to find the belts tensioners and pulleys that are actually used on my car, But a call to autohaus for belt parts before correcting the tension just took 3 minutes.
