    cold weather start grinding noise

    Hi all,
    I always start my Durango remotely in the morning so I have not noticed this earlier and I'm not sure how long this has been going on.
    The past few days I have not used a remote start and have noticed a metal on metal type grinding noise lasting about a second when first starting up the engine in the morning. This is not the typical hemi cold start noise which we are all familiar with, this one is coming from the engine bay not the exhaust.
    Furthermore the noise is not there later on in the day so it has to do with a longer rest time (overnight) or cold weather or combination of both.
    I will post a yt video tomorrow.

    Any thoughts?

    Edit:
    Here's the video link, noise can be heard around 10 sec in.

    Well, its not Hemi specific because my 3.6 does the same thing on cold starts. But not every time. I thought maybe the starter but not so sure now. Its intermitent and has done it since purchased. Hopefully we can figure it out!

    I think what im hearing is more of a ratcheting sound rather than grinding

    Flushed the power steering fluid and noise is gone.

    This noise is still present, but intermittent. Was loud this morning. I'm going underneath next week( on Vaca) and check out the heat shields.
