Everytime i start my car theres a weird noise like when you turn the key to far after you have started it. Anyone have a clue what this is. Someone told me it may have been something to do with the air box because that seems to be where the noise is coming from. Its not really a big deal but i figured id throw it out there incase someone knew what i was talking about.
Thanks

like a scratching/suck noise. Slightly similar to the noise a car makes when you push turn the car key too far and screw the starter. BUt i know its not that because of trial and error

if the noise only happens immediately when you start it and not again while the car is running, it could be the airbox. Just noise from the engine sucking in the air. I would rev it in neutral and see if you hear the same noise. I would also consider taking it to the dealer if this is something you haven't noticed before.

the shifter...I have one, it is great. I love it. I would do a search for steeda shifter or just shifter and you will find plenty of reviews.
