Was the GEECC~kkkeee a grinding sound or squeal?

If it was grinding it could be your starter staying engaged into the flywheel after the engine was running. This could mean a weak/broken starter gear return spring or a sticking starter solenoid. Could it also be the engine was already running? How many time has all of us accidently tried to start an already running vehicle he he. [img]redface.gif[/img]

Anyway, It could be as simple as sqauling pully belts too. Depending on if it was a geecc~kkkeee with a high pitch wrhrrreeeccchhh~rrreerrrreeeee.

electric fuel pump priming up?
where ya from noriko (shall I guess)?

if the gas tank was empty, and it does it again next time it's empty, then I'd guess it's the fuel pump.
