Anybody's starter squealing besides mine? It happens when I let off the key after cranking it. Only have like 140-150 miles and about 25 hrs on the thing. Too new to be doing crap like this already:mad:.

I know on my pickup when the temps drop too seriously I put the pedal to the floor and crank a few times to help circulate the oil, let off and she'll fire right up. Really does away with many of the morning sickness symptoms.

I keep the thing in my well insulated basement garage. Air temp is in the mid 50's or warmer in the garage. Sounds like a dry, sloppy starter pinion shaft with the pinion chattering on the shaft as it free wheels back into place after starting. We'll see how it goes.

If I was to point at something I would say its because of the freezing cold weather.

Happens to my car sometimes too for the first few seconds.
