Start up noise

When I start my car in the morning to go to work as it turns over it makes a clunk noise when I let the key go. Any idea what that is?

Sorry I was so short .. I didn't mean to send just that then lost signal and forgot to get back in here .. The starter when held down to long makes a clunking noise the starter gear on the flywheel .. Your starter or flywheel could be missing teeth or have a lose starter

Is it a shop fix or something I can do myself to figure out what it is?

Re: Start up noise

I have been living with it for 8 years. I noticed new Optima batteries almost made it go away, but it's a V6 Mustang thing... More of us have it than admit...
