To me thats what it sounds like as well (starter problem) and the sound from inside the cabin sounds like its coming from inside the hood on the passenger side, anything i should be worried about?Just my 2 cents...sounds like a starter bendex having a hard time releasing to me.
I wouldn't know i purchased the tracker 1 week ago and its been doing it ever since.It sounds like the starter dragging, have you been off roading in slush or water lately? Have someone start the car for you while you listen with the hood up. Fan clutches on these cars sometimes make a noise on cold start as well.
Disregard all other noise hehe, the only important noise is the one at 6-7 seconds, the slow cranks are due to very cold temperature (-30 celcius) , i had a friend of mine listen to it today and he seems to think starter as well, thing is this tracker only has 60 000km on it so i am wondering if it's just due to it not being used enough and will get better or i should actually replace the starter.Is it me, or does anyone hear 'weird' noises at 3, 5 and 7 seconds. At 3 seconds, before the key is put to the on position, there seems to be a bit of a rumble somewhere. At 5 seconds, couple of cranks from the starter appears to be dragging/low battery. At 7 seconds, there appears to be the sucking sound of vacuum. ????
Haha yep I did buy it, its in beautiful shape, I ended up getting it for 7200$ which is still alot of money but I love this thing.So you bought the tracker from Pothier"s in Falmouth? I thought you said no thanks too expensive when I posted the link...lol I looked at it and it is a beautiful vehicle in my opinion worth the money. It did set for a long time so it will take a while to get the bugs out. Enjoy your new ride..
