2000 Chrysler Cirrus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
When turning the key and engaging the starter, there is a very loud repetitious clanking noise under the hood until the engine starts. The engine idles and sounds smooth as soon as it starts, but the entire time the starter is turning the clanking proceeds. This happens every single time the car is started. The noise is a very consistent "clank clank clank clank" (maybe 5-8 times) until the car starts. What are the possible causes for a noise like this?
have the same problem?
