You need to give more info. How old is the car? Does the engine turn when
the sound happens? It could be just a vibration, but alternately a broken
tooth on the flywheel, which requires pulling the transmission (a day's work
in a dealer or specialized transmission shop). Only a mechanic can tell for
sure.

The car starts ok but just before i let the ignition go the grating kicks
in. It sounds like somethings just missing or catching , forgive my complete
lack of savvy on this, thanks.
