02 excursion metallic scrape sound on startup

Hi all. Bought my 02 excursion a couple months ago. In the last couple of days it's started having a metal rubbing on metal or high pitched rattle noise on startup. When I drive it about a hundred feet or so, it stops. If I turn it off and restart it, the noise is back until I drive it again. It never does it except on startup. Perfectly fine driving down the road. I'm wondering if the starter isn't pulling back in and my driving pops it in. It won't go away while revving at idle either. Anyone have anything similar happen to them?

Check idler pulleys and also the belt drive for the water pump. There's not much clearance between that and the front cover and if its loose or bent it'll make contact. If it is making contact it won't be long before you have a coolant leak.

Oops just noticed the year of your truck, I was thinking 6.0

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's in the starter circuit. I found a tab for it too. Still want opinions though

Check your starter bolts, mine were backed way out and one was just about to fall out. Mine was doing the same kind of thing. I check them during every oil change now. More then likely your bolts have never been checked and are possibly backed out enough to cause your issues.

I agree with the starter thing. Mine fell out once. Caught it before it did it a second time. heard loose exhaust clamps doing that too.
