How long has it been happening, and what viscosity of oil are you using? Can you better explain this "growl"? What part of the engine does it sound like it's coming from?

Bearing in accessory such as generator or a belt-tensioner. You can remove drive belt to see if this stops the noise.

Its the alternator belt slapping, it is either worn out or out of adjustment/loose...or both.

My 05 Sedona does the same thing on start up. I highly suspect it's a bad AC condenser since my AC went out shortly there after.

How's your AC working?

Its the a/c-alternator belt, been down this road a thousand times, either replace or adjust the belt. What is happening is the belt sarts to slap back and forth when you take the engine just off idle.
