I think my starter might be going already, which is kinda weird. I have a little over 36,000 miles on my car now.
Whenever I start up when its cold, it makes like a weird choking/grinding noise. Also, just recently itll take a little longer for the car to actually start than normal.
Anyone else experience this? This thing should be a warrenty-covered item, i hope.

Re: (tyrolkid)

my car had been making a pretty weird noise when starting in the cold...
it would turn over, then make a kind of zzzzzip like you are running a credit card over corduroy pants.

anyways, whatever was causing it completely went on sunday when I was supposed to be driving to buffalo. it turns over nice but it wont fire.. although there are little sparks of life it never fires twice... only single putts.
its going into the shop tomorrow probably so ill keep you posted. might be a completely different problem but who knows.
