Expert:  Gary replied 9 months ago.

the starter drive is not hitting anything at all when the starter is not being engaged ?

at idle ? driving at speed ? when does it make this noise the most ?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
have not checked that..it does vary at rpm also.
Expert:  Gary replied 9 months ago.

be sure the starter is not causing this issue if it is not then remove the converter bolts and push the converter back off the flexplate and run its and see if the noise is gone if it is the issue is usually a cracked flexplate or a few very rare ones having input shaft issues or the converters causing this problem

if the noise is still there then the starter is the problem or the flax plate or a noise inside the rear of the engine like a rod bearing
