Is it a boom? If so, then the car is getting too much gas when you start it. Check the fuel injector(s) and the carburator.

If this noise is like a loud ticking at a fast pace, it would be your starter going bad. If the noise is a loud boom/pop sound from the rear of the car, it would possibly be that the exhaust is backfiring..... not sure how to fix that aspect to fix the issue.

experts said to much gas at starting...they all were had a old battery..put in a new one and problem fixed

The gas making the popping noise is hydrogen.

A leaking manifold seal on the intake will cause a popping noise on the 1996 Honda Accord. This can heard most clearly on days when the weather is cold because the seals tend to shrink.

First diagnose it to locate the exact location the noise coming from then determine course of action to fix it.
