my car makes a funny noise when i start it.
i took it to the dealer and they said it was the starter, but they couldnt find anything wrong with it. they said it runs fine, but for some weird reason it makes a squeal when it starts.
any one else have this problem?

I have the same thing. The only time it makes the noise is when its cold.When its warm it'll never do it. My dealer said that the starter wasn't releasing fast enough. Its been doing it for a little over year and hasn't shown any signs of failing.

What kind of squeal is it? It could be the belts slipping.

I've had my car for two years now and it makes the same noise I think you are talking about. Same situation too. You're sitting there giving your car props or your woman right next to you, and you car makes this god awful noise. From what I understand it's just the starter being annoying. I've never replaced my starter, but it makes that noise when it gets cold. I've never really worried about it. Should I have? It doesn't seem like a big deal

Its called starter squeal. Its mora annoying than anyhting. it wont harm anything, and if you replace your starter plan on hearing it again in a couple months.
