: 05 STS v6 whine noise at shut off.

Started car after several attempts tonight, and even sounded like the starter was sticking. Now every time you shut it off it makes an abrupt whine noise from under the car. It's not coming from the front but at the bell housing area, I haven't jacked it up to pinpoint it but my guess is I wore the starter out a little bit and now it gripping at me. Anyone else been through this?

It sounds like the starter is not hitting the flywheel

I tried it again this morning and everything is fine like nothing happened. I already checked on another starter at oreilly's just in case, $250ish. If it does turn out to be the problem later on, at least its an easy fix that I can do myself.
