Hi Anonymous, I'm sorry but I just loaned my listening ears to the lead technician at your local Harley Dealer so he could take your bike for a test ride and evaluate the noise. Have a nice day.

When starting truck starter makes a grinding noise but stops after a second, how do I stop this


Grinding noises from the starter are usually caused by a defective starter drive gear and or damaged ring gear teeth. I would suggest removing the starter motor and inspect the starter drive gear as well as the teeth on the ring gear for damage and repair/replace as necessary

My 2002 lincoln ls makes a loud grinding noise when i first start it. Then the noise goes away. Now my car won't even start.


Hi Nancy:
The first thing that I would be suspicious of would be the starter. What happens when you try to start the car? Does the starter turn over? Is there a clicking noise? Did the car run fine after starting with the grinding noise? If it did, then the grinding was probably associated with the starter. If you pull the starter and the little gear on the pointy end is all chewed up you'll be on your way to solving the problem. If you're lucky, a rebuilt starter will probably be most cost effective and hopefully (usually) the ring gear will be OK.
Hope this helps.

2009 hyundai sonata ,makes a grinding noise when starts, and it will start while the key is on the , on position it doesnt have to be in start position to start.it also grinds when i go from drive to park....


my 2009 Hyundai Sonata was making a grinding noise like the starter was locking up i would move the key a little back and noise will go away everyone i brought the car to said it was the starter except one mechanic said its a starter relay switch on the ignition so i took his word on it and paid $100.00 the problem is fix so before you spend over 300.00 for a starter ask about this most mechanic will say if it not the problem he will credit the $100.00 towards the repair of the starter

Doesn't want to keep running and some grinding noise when startin


From what you describe I would suspect that the starter is not fully engaging. I'm assuming that the grinding noise you hear when you try to engage the starter is INSTEAD of the engine cranking. If I assumed wrong, ignore the following:
Pull the starter, check the flywheel for excessively worn areas. Most of the time the flywheel is ok, it's just the starter. Any time you disassemble a starter you should replace the bushings and brushes. Never remove the starter with the battery still connected. Remove the negative terminal from the battery before you attempt to remove the starter.

When i try to start the car it makes a funny sound and wont start it sounds like something is not catching


Good indication of a bad starter. Is it just clicking or is it a grinding ugly noise?. The second is definately the starter.

Century 2004: Flywheel/Starter or miracle of Lucas oil?


The starter and gearbox are not connected by way of a grinding noise.
If it is the gearbox, I would get it serviced or replaced. If starter motor, the grinding noise will be there only when the dog gear is engaged when starting.
