1998 ford ranger

Asked by May 20, 2016 at 02:24 PM about the 1998 Ford Ranger XL Standard Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

When cranking, there is a metal to metal sound and
hesitates to start. Second time trying to start makes
same sound again and then starts. Does that sound
like Maude a bad starter?

It's probably the starter going bad. Take it off and check it out, sounds like its not fully engaging when you first try to start it.
