Re: 1999 MAZDA MILENIA MAKES LOUD NOISE WHEN KEY IS...
Could be the crank shaft. Had the same thing happen to me... kinda sounds like a spoon in the blender? Looking at $400 for part and labor if nothing else has been damaged. But if the crank shaft goes, your looking at another $20 for the belt too. Not too bad. Shouldn't keep letting it do that, eventually it'll snap off completely and your car won't go anywhere.

Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.
If you are sure it is not the battery then it has to be the starter. If it makes just one click when you turn the key then the noise you are hearing is the starter solenoid. This means the starter gear is engaging with the flywheel but the motor is no longer working and is not turning the engine over. I hope this helps!
sounds like your starter gear may be hitting the flexiplate but that should not effect the trans.
There may be a safety lock on your gearshift under the console that is faulty, it should disengage when the ignition key is turned on, my brother in law had this problem with his new car, I removed it all together as it was more trouble than it was worth
It could be the fuel pump pressurizing the system. Does the sound stop after a few seconds? If it is the fuel pump then it is a normal sound. Fuel pumps will resonate in the tank when you are low on gas, making them sound louder. If it is more than a hum then I would get it checked out.
Yes, if I am reading this correctly, it sounds as if the bushings in the starter have worn to the point were when you are starting, its not meshing with the flywheel as it should. If you don't get changed, it can lead to the point of needing to replace flywheel also. When you have the starter off, also check the condition of the flywheel. -- just re-read, and it sounds as if the noise is still present after the cranking, if this is correct, i would be looking at all the pullys. I would take the belt off and see if the noise was still present-if it stopped spin all the pullys by hand and see if any feel rough or wobble.
your starter is shot most likely. the noise is the drive gear at the end of the starter not throwing far enough onto the flywheel. Dont keep starting like this as a new flywheeel will be v expensive if damaged! Have your battery checked out too as a limp battery will not produce the power that the solenoid needs to throw that gear out properly and a new starter will fail too.
Pls rate me if this helps.
