Over the past 4 weeks I have heard grinding noises when engaging the key to start my car. I recently had the starter motor replaced. Yesterday I heard the noise againg. I asked the repair station if they knew what it could be. They don't have any further advise. Although the car does start on the second or third try I'm fearfull I will get stranded when the car doesn't start and something big is about to happen.
