I have 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse with 75k miles on it. When I start it, it takes 3-5 seconds to start it and makes a extremely loud noise while starting it.

Asked by May 09, 2014 at 12:52 AM about the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I go to start it, it doesn't turn over right away and
makes a terribly loud noise. Just when I'm starting it.
Once it's started, there's no loud noises and runs fine. I've
also had problems with my battery connector but I got
that fixed. Does anyone have any idea what it could be?
I've been told that it could possibly be a cracked flywheel
or the battery isn't putting out enough. Also my service
engine soon light is on. Help!

It almost sounds like a starter issue... if you do remove it to look at it check the gear teeth to see if they're grinding.
