: Starter issue

03 Escalade 6.0

I have noticed recently that when I start my truck, sometimes after I release the key, the starter continues to turn until it starts up.

I have also been noticing over the past few months that at times, when I turn the key and the starter turns, at the EXACT moment the car starts, there is a hard knock sound. Metal/metal sound, like from the starter.

Anyone ever have a similar issue?
Would changing the starter take care of that small portion of my escalade maint/repair saga???
