    It's the IAC (idle air control) motor doing a recalibrate which always happens when you turn on the ignition.

    Thanks for you reply.
    That makes sense, however i did not hear this before, could it be that the part its on its way out?

    Thank you for response. Meanwhile ive owned the car for over 10 years, i know every sound that it does and never heard this before until recently, which leads me to think that is something not 100% right with some part... could it be wear of lack of lubrification on that component?

    If your idle works properly I wouldn't worry about it unless it never stops when key is turned on. But if it brothers you so much you can take it apart and clean it. I did that to mine which helped a little (still does it but shorter).
