I have a 2005 Mondeo TDCi and have had various starter and DMF issues since buying the car. I had the starter replaced about 6 months back and the DMF replaced by a solid flywheel more recently.

Now, I am having more problems. When I turn the key in the ignition, the engine starts immediately, but them immediately makes a worrying noise, before I have let go of the key.

The best way I can describe the noise is this. If you have ever tried turning the ignition when the engine is already running, you often hear a kind of grating noise. This sounds just like that.

Have something to contribute?

is it possible the starter is not releasing quickly enough?

is it possible the starter is not releasing quickly enough?

If it is, is that a simple adjustment of some kind, or could it get expensive?
