Maybe a bad spot in the flywheel

Sounds like broken teeth on the flywheel. Try this. If it begins to make noise when you go to start it, put the shift lever in "D" and push it forward a few feet. This will move the flywheel slightly. If it starts without the noise it's the flywheel.

The transmission does not turn the engine when it's in drive and u push it. Unless it's a manual
