Hello I have a 1990 ford laser but with a small problem when I go to start it up sometimes and this is getting more regular it makes a really loud noise. The only way I can describe this noise is it sound like the noise if you have ever turned the key in the ignition when the engine is on it sounds like this. Just wondering if there is any way to stop this its really annoying and embarrassing

This may be the starter Bendix, I would have the starter check as it may be damaging the drive plat, and if this is to far gone the trans must be removed to replace it.
