When I start the car, there is a gear grinding sound. As if the starter hung out. It sounds like the Torque converter is making the noise. As the car warms up the sound goes away. In park I rev the eng, the noise follows the RPMs. Also happens when driving, more pronounced right before it shifts.
Any ideas???

It's a 99 3.0 Duratec with 128K. No problems with the starter. I guess I can pull it and check it out.
