I've had my teg for a while now but when i start it up it makes this wierd eeeerrrr sound for about 2 seconds then stops it doesnt affect anything it just i have never heard anything like it in other car including my old school teg so i was wondering if it is the tip of the iceburge for some other unsweet problem:confused:

could it be your starter staying enguaged for that split second?I have herd starters make an errr sound when the shaft is dirty where the bendix slides out to meet the flywheel. The bendix itself vibrates on return.
I guess the only real way to see if this is the issue would be to remove the starter and bench test it.
just a thought
