View Full Version : car makes weird noise when starting

hey guys,

i have a 2001 GAGT, latey when i start my car i get this loud screeching noise. It does this only sometimes when i start my car. It sounds like when ur car is on and u accidently turn the ignition to start it.

I already checked to see if it could be the belts, but they are fine

would this sound be comming from my starter or ignition
any help will be great :)

could possibly be a chewed up spot on teh flexplate (flywheel).

if you find out what it is post it here, mine does the same thing.

mine does the same thing, i did some researching and something that was mentioned alot was the starter, which kinda makes sense, i have yet to replace mine and see if that was it though.

i dunno if i will check the flywheel, i might as well go to the shop for that.

im getting a new starter as well, so ill update once i find what was causing the problem
any more ideas would be great :boogie:

We had a 1996 contour come in with the same problem. It would start fine, but every once ina while it would screech like hell when you started it. When the flywheel would stop on a certain spot ( it was like 3 teeth that were chewed) it would screech.
