Default I have a 1998 Honda CR-V. The starter makes an awful noise AFTER it starts the vehicle on

cold mornings? Should it be replaced?

Really loud grating noise

Two noises:

1. does it sound like metal hitting metal and a really loud grating noise? Could be you are missing ONE tooth on the flywheel or the starter motor gear. I hope it's the starter gear, that's just a replacement starter. Replacement flywheel or toothed edge is big money.

OR>>>> the solenoid isn't retracting the small starter gear fast enough (after you let up on the key), and the big flywheel is racing it very fast. Ouch!

2. Does it sound like a loud musical Woooooo! Could be the starter motor is loose against the engine block. Does that model require a ''shim''?

The front bearing on your starter motor is dry or slightly worn, it needs changing or a little lubrication.
