Hi all. 2012 Eco that just passed 100k miles. On starting, immediately after the engine turns over (starts running), I have a second or so of metallic grinding/chatter. This has been going on for a little while, and is worse in the cold. Less of an issue after the car is warm, but still present. I strongly suspect that the starter is not disengaging from the flywheel fast enough. Anyone else have this issue? Any other suggestions before I order a new starter? Thanks.

Ok, thanks for confirming my suspicions. Aside from it just being annoying, I'm concerned that it will damage the flywheel teeth. It's also seemed slower to turn over lately. I'll get the battery checked, but if that's good I think a new starter will be next.
