My 1999 Lincoln Town Car has started making a gurgly/grindy noise when it starts up. It stops after a few minutes. It seems to becoming from the serpentine belt area. Any thoughts.

Take the belt off and check all the pulleys for wobble or play. May have a bad water pump. Other thoughts are there is air in the systems and needs bleed. Hopefully this is not a head gasket issue that can make similar noises. Good Luck!
