Is it possible you installed the wrong starter? Parts stores are not always accurate on replacements. Different engine size and year can make a huge difference even though the new part may look very similar. Double check the part numbers, year, and size of your motor before install. Double check proper seating of the starter on install and reuse the original shims if any.

One of the belt pulleys likely has a bad bearing. watch the pulleys for binding while it's running or remove the belt and check each pulley by hand. AC puts more strain on the belt...if the belt is not new and pulleys check out, (and tensioner is working properly) change the belt.

Have you cleaned the corrosion off the battery terminals and battery cable? Corrosion lowers the amount of amperage that can be pasted from the battery to the starter.

Car makes loud noise starting


sounds like your starter needs shimmed and/or replaced or you have a flat spot on your flywheel. the sound your hearing is from the starter motor gears not properly aligning with the flywheel gears and quite literally grinding material off of one or the other. if you continue to force it your flywheel will need replaced if not already

I have a 99 Ford Superduty 7.3 Diesel. It is making a really bad grinding/screeching sound just after it starts and is warming up. It wouldn't ******* off all the way even after the key was turned


indicates that the starter motor is stuck in the ring gear
possibly faulty starter relay or starter solenoid
pull the starter as the pinion over ride clutch is probably damaged ( noise ) and have the start circuit and relay checked
have the starter bench tested for serviceability by an accredited auto electrician

Loud screeching noise upon starting


It is your serpentine belt slipping on one of the metal pulleys and the friction is causing the high pitch screech. The belt may need to be tightened or replaced, which is an easy fix.

I have a 1990 jeep YJ replaced the alternator and now there is a loud screeching noise replaced the belt,replaced new bearing in idler pulley still makes a loud screeching noise?


If the belt is not tense enough it will squeal, so make sure it's tight enough. Otherwise you can use a stethoscope or long screwdriver up to your ear to isolate the source of the noise.

Rear brakes screeches


you will be needing to replace the brake pads very soon. the pads have a metal tab mounted to them that will actually make contact with the brake rotor when the pads wear to a certain point...this makes a loud screech everytime you brake, and sometimes when you dont, to let the driver know that the brake pads are worn out.

Loud Sqeaul/screech from engine upon start up


could be your alternator. at start up. alternator usually has a big load because you just use your starter. it would recharge the battery and after a while the battery would be fully charge, the squealing noise will be gone.

check also all the belts if they are individual belts. use some belt dressings to eliminate the noise. sometimes the belt are just worn out and it would also make these noises.
